No Going Back

This weekend I tore down my old layout modules, cut them to pieces and dumped them outside where they promptly became soaked in the rain.

No going back now!

Keep Sandpoint Rolling

BNSF has been working up plans for a few years to expand the bridge across the lake at Sandpoint, ID. This upgrade would consist of a second bridge allowing for more future rail traffic and a reduction in congestion.

KeepSandpointRolling.com was created by the company to present their plans as well as the benefits of expanded rail operations for the community.

As a railfan, I am excited by the possibility of more trains, but I do understand the concerns of citizens looking to limit industrial intrusion and preserve their beautiful  piece of the country.

Movie Mondays #11

Posting this one here mostly for posterity as I'll be building no less than TWO swing gates on my layout in the near future. That said, all of Stephen Bennett's layout progress videos are very in-depth and informative. (which I appreciate greatly) Go check them out!
