I might have mentioned it here once or twice already, but I’m building a pair of modules in S scale and taking them to a railway hobby show in Laval, Québec to participate in the S Scale Workshop exhibition layout.
That show – Salon due train rive nord (or: The North Shore Train Show) – happens October 4 and 5. So I’m down to the wire.
Fortunately I’m now done with the wire, too: I invited Chris Abbott over last night, and we got everything soldered up and ready to go. (Thanks, Chris!)
Today, I turned to scenery on two more four-foot sections. Here’s a quick picture of the sections – forming the heart of the Division Street module – taken while the glue dried:
With the work done earlier this week on the Judge Farm module, I now have basic ground cover and ballast on four of these sections – 16 feet in total. I have six more feet to do, then I can turn my attention to seeing how many details I can add before the show.
If you’re in the Montréal, Canada area two weekends from now, why not come out to the show and see how I made out?
Before last night’s wiring session, I knocked out a huge pot of chili – excellent, if I may be immodest – and laid in a few bottles of Funnel Blower from Box Steam Brewery in Wiltshire UK. Together, they got us through our six-hour wiring marathon.
If you want help with wiring, cook something hearty and buy good beer.
