Today the section gang entered St. Williams, having finished spiking all the rail through the Lynn Valley to Port Rowan. It took less than an hour and it’s great to cross the short bridge over Stone Church Road and have St. Williams in my sights.
The Lynn Valley has already been wired so the track here is ready for rail painting and ballast – and I can finish adding Terra Foama through the valley to ensure any derailments that do occur stay on the layout – instead of plunging to the floor.
I’m really looking forward to doing more scenery in this section – although the Lynn Valley is going to swallow a lot of trees. One of these days, really soon now, I’ll have to break out the tree-making tools and materials and start building.
