Mainline Back In Service

The mainline was returned to service in plenty of time. Since all of these sidings are new and weren't needed right away, I got them mostly in place, but didn't activate them.

In the next picture you will see a new dairy for the Milk Train to work. brown Barrel will be moved from Orrington. And a new freight station.

George C Brown will be moved from two locations to here. 

All in all I will gain four spots from here. Now onto the programming changes.

Things are coming together

After some struggles things are starting to work out. I was able to get Bangor (Old Brewer) down to a switching height of 1" lower than Orrington.

Bangor was moved to the left about eight feet to help in getting the track down to a better height.

Cut in a bridge and a place for my covered bridge while I was at it.

Upper level widening

I had 1 month between sessions and only planned on reducing 8' of upper decking by 9", but keeping the track work.  Needless to say the plan went to hell quickly. The wires were running through holes in the benchwork, which meant I had to disconnect all of them. So what happened was ~30 feet of trackwork got removed.

Since I had to go beyond initial ideas I decided to relay all of the track too.

Looking at this I wondered what I was thinking.
