D&H Electrical Department hard at work

Wires, Tortoise and more wire

It has been a week or so since my last blog update..
While the info flow on the blog has been slow, the works on the layout have not been..

A week or so ago I completed the tortoise machine install for the North end of Whitehall including the industral track and the storage tracks.

Then I moved onto a small job of completeing the track and tortoise machines for the Cement plant at Ft Edward.

Once the Cement plant was completed, I then needed to turn my hand to building more turnouts for the layout.
As of today I have now built 6 of the 38 that are needed.
They are getting better every time and Im most pleased with the outcome.

Once I had increased the stocks of turnouts, I then moved to Willsboro and installed the Paper Mill tracks as well as the other industral spur that is in town.

I have still need to install tortoise machines on three of the turnouts however the track work is now complete.
Here are a few pictures of Willsboro.
The U30C and caboose are sitting on the switching lead for the paper mill. This will enable switching to be completed independantly of the main line. The paper mill switcher will be either a S2/S4 or a RS2 and be held at the plant.

Thats all for now.
This weekend I hope to install the 3 trmaining tortoise machines at Willsboro and then I will return to Whitehall and complete the build of the turnouts needed for the loco facility.
Stay tuned.
