Roadbed is being caulked down this time instead of glue incase we have to change anything also this works better than glue in case i ever want to start over again - also will be able to salvage the road bed better.


Downtown chicago, 1990's.Now'a days most of these building here are condos, empty  or vacant lots being prepared to be made into health clubs grocery stores and shopping malls. Some of the rail is still in place, most of it anyways. Some is burried under pavement.

Well anyways, Lets get right to the point.One table is 1x6 foot, yea very thin! and the other is 2x8. which makes it 14 feet long, Perfect for HO Scale. Right now iam almost completed taking out the cork on the larger table. I really wanted to re-do this area. So in in the meantime iam chipping up the old cork with a steel putty knotife and a hammer, I'm almost there. Then ill start sanding it smooth. A tan coat of Paint or green, not sure yet. Then i'll have plenty of time to think of what to do with Three left, Four right Atlas code 100 turnouts which I might just junk or sell and get some code 83.

The smaller table1x6 is perfect i squeezed a run around and 3 industries in this spot. I'll see what I can do about photos. Or if i can draw a track plan simular to those in the magazines we read.

Locomotives and rolling stock is typical 1990's era open/closed auto racks, mechanical reefers, some 40 ps1's here and there acf and thrall covered hoppers for grain shipping on lake michigan, and plenty of railbox, FMC, and Sieco box cars for paper. A single Gp30 does most the work when its time for my operating session although a gp38 is always onhand for those heavy days to speed switching.
