I am now laying subroadbed for the grade up to the lumber operation, and filling in the Oakridge “yard”. The yard at Oakridge is working out to be smaller than the plan and I am debating extending it to the other side of the mainline where I have some room. The lumber route will join the mainline at both ends with a small yard in the middle. I have also removed some benchwork where the trestles will be constructed.
I visited the Lane Society of Model Railroaders club layout this past Sunday and saw them run a few trains around their large HO layout. I hope to attend an operations session at some time in the future. Many thanks to Dave, Jim, Mike, and the other fellows who made me feel welcome. Sorry I can’t remember all of your names, but I can barely remember my own sometimes!
