In 2014 the railroad hit 10 years old. All the new construction had to be complete by October because my layout was one of the ones that NMRA members would be touring in the fall. We had to work hard to get everything up and running. Power under the railroad had to be hooked up. Chasing bugs in the electrical system was the most time-consuming of all.
In 2012 I lost my work shop due to expansion of the railroad. The extension off of Sharonville Yard that contained Second Chance and Howard Yard was turned around and mounted on the opposite wall. The railroad then took over the outside wall to meet up with Second Chance and Howard Yard from the end of Sharonville. A second helix was also added to the railroad.
