    Right now I'm ballasting the new section of my layout. I just finished painting the tracks and ties, so I've started working on the yard area first.

    I'm shifting a couple of scenes to different locations on the layout to make operations a little more sensible. A former industrial area is now a loco servicing area near a set of yard tracks for example. I'm tweaking some scenary and am fooling around with a shortline concept to vary up all of the black in my PC roster.

    Everything listed but lights. Mostly scenery and the ever present hunt for new diesels.

    I'm cleaning out my garage so that I can have room to rebuild an Isuzu diesel for a children's camp I do volunteer work for. I thought when I retired, I'd have more free time, so far that isn't the case.

    The project on the workbench is a scratch-built timber yard; resurfaced after many years hiatus. There's also an engine shed kit (Sidmouth, Devon).
    Today was layout tour day in Guelph. We managed 10 of the 12 available. Dayle saw a Galloping Goose with sound and other features -- that might be my Christmas and birthday and maybe something else gift.
