Cold Spring Shops stood down from posting during the New Year holidays, to savor some college football games (embrace the suck, SEC) and the wild-card round of the National Football League (used to be, that was done by the end of December, with the famous Ice Bowl on December 31, and the college bowl games done by 10 pm on January 1.)
There was also time to work on the railroad.
The push-pins are holding track in position while the glue sets up.
Several more turnouts in place, and a test engine run up to check for irregularities. None noted, although we all know that at the first public showing, they will turn up!
And a test run, headed toward the section recently glued in place. Wiring first, then a serious freight train to come.
