Well Christmas is over New year to come. I decided to name my layout Much Faffing as a temporary name till a more permanent name is settled. Have constructed all the base boards and put them together several times now and not quite happy with how they go together so that will need some work .The backboards need to be completed and storing the 2 removable boards needs sorting where they are stacked when not in use.
Christmas has given me time to run in some engines in and run all engines and stock .I now have 14 loco's but only 2 have been chipped so i ran the others on DC first then the 2 on DCC . This also gave me time to look at the DCC NCE controller and program the loco adresses using there loco numbers. I must admit i was a bit worried i would find this difficult but the manual is very good and soon had these loco's going.
I'm still looking at underlay i did buy a roll of Woodland scenics roadbed which will be ok for the double track between the storage and station areas. Still looking at the storage area as the Woodland scenics 12"x 24"x 5mm sheets works out quite expencive so need to do a bit of serching for that. Hopefully this year will see some real progress tongue.gif Next job is to finnish the baseboards and find a track plan for the scenic part of the layout.
