    I finished up the walk thru gate module in time for our first show. Finishing touches were some scenery to the two tower tops. The buildings are held in place with magnets and are easily removed when breaking it down for transporting. Everything gets stored neatly inside the towers. I did make a terrible electrical error, I wired a bank of female cinch jones plugs backwards. This we discovered at the show when we started tripping the breaker on our power supply. Fortunately we were able to by-pass the electrical interlock and use it throughout the show. With no safety shut off, when the gate is open, every one had to look for oncoming trains before opening the gate.
