I have to admit CONRAIL always makes me smile. Was it a REALLY good name for a railroad company? Like 'we rip you off'. Perhaps it's a bit like Conair. Does your model come complete with a 2mm Nicholas Cage saying "Put the Bunny down"? Anyway, corporate naming aside, at least Conrail successfully managed to sort out the appalling mess left by Penn Central. A fine model for a fine model railroad!

Just a quick update, all the power feeds and point control cables have now been installed, now to convert the temporary connections to permanent , I will have to flip the baseboards over and get busy.

Having now completed, adding the power droppers and point control wires, fixing the track down with clear silicone, prior to flipping the boards over to tidy up the wiring I thought I would run a coal train around Toothill using the newly arrived Coalporters.

The wiring has now been completed, the points have now been programmed into my ECoS and the Mimic panel set up. I can now start on my favourite part of railway modelling the scenery.

After a busy weekend supplying Tea, Coffee, Cakes, Biscuits and Crisps to the public at Trainwest I was in desperate need of some watching trains go by.

Amazing bargains indeed. Especially the Doodlebug. Have to admit I wish I'd spotted that one myself :'(

Anyhow they've gone to a good home!
