A little work have been done...

... despite the poor beginning of the day. I woke up on the wrong side but it definitely got better.

The Mill Street section have taken one step further with some paint on the concrete roads, some "Carlsson-Goo" on the hillside and some filler on the part next to the teamtrack.

On the Depot section is it a bit calmer, its just a test of the new Farmers Co Op storageshed (Walthers) together with neighbours. The Freighthouse on the opposite side is a loan from the Junction awaiting a slight smaller and more Burlingtonlike scratchbuilt one.

First cargo arrived...

... to the "mill track". The remaining trackpieces was soldered and a small testrun was executed. All tracks all over again and again and ... and it seems like it work (this far). The switching crew on the local will hate me for the layout with two roadcrossing that not should be blocked ;)

Two small pieces of track

Todays work have been the two missing pieces of track on "Mill Street"-section together with work on the road and place for the Mill itself.

Long time...

Due too many other things the work on the Junction got lower priority a long time, but now it´s one the move again. One big decision been made, "Crawford Junction" (seen above) and "Crawford Valley" are now to separate module-sets but still on this blogg together.

Hopefully there will get som new grass and a lot of train running to test before the rail are painted and ballasted on the remaining
