10 days … and counting!

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.

  1. Trevor,

    I’m patiently awaiting the Train Masters episode covering this progress. I’m very curious to see how you created the roadway–it looks fantastic!

    – Rick.
