Basement progress

A big step forward in the basement, the Junction, a non-scenic module that make the module setup to an out and back with the Staging Yard to the end point and Crawford Valley and Hawks Plain in the loop

The location are somewhere West of Chicago between the lines to Twin City and Denver on a small  branchline sometimes used to re-route the ”big trains”

 A small corner module

The Junction with a non scenic part (grey) and the closest part that will get som landscape and a bridge as scenic divider to hide the outer part of the world.

The trains are rolling. A wiew from Mill Street.

But there are still a lot work, another corner module and to connect the loop. And a lot of maintenance after more than year not running...

Eighty years Zephyr...

"I trust that everyone realizes that today is a special day in CB&Q history. Eighty years ago, on May 26, 1934, the three car Burlington Zephyr (later, the Pioneer Zephyr) made it's historic dawn to dusk run from Denver, Co to the Chicago's Century of Progress exhibition, covering the 1015 miles in just over 13 hours at an average speed of 77.6 mph. That day, 80 years ago, changed railroad passenger service in America and certainly changed passenger service on the Chicago Burlington and Quincy from that point on. Happy Anniversary, Pioneer Zephyr." (from the cb&q yahoo-group)
