November Update

This has been a busy month. I finally finished some engines for a friend in Chicago and got them off my workbench. I had an MRC Sound decoder fail in SCXY 1325, so I swapped an ESU LokSound Micro in its place (huge improvement). I am having fun making layout progress right now, so that has been a big focus of the month.

I made some more progress on Ivy Farms Trucking. I added the shingled roof to the main building. I also repainted the pole barn and got it weathered.
I got the Creekside Cafe almost done. The outside is painted, roof is on, and signage was added for the cafe and the Other Side Bar.
Inside I added tables, chairs, bar stools and a pool table.
 I got a Willy's to park outside the Corp. HQ. That was fun to paint.
More trees planted in Hinckley.
I completed a sideboom crawler I've had on the bench for years.
I added some powerlines in Rush City. there will be more of them coming soon.
 I added the camera pole for the Mill. The solar panel is a decal.
And I ran trains. This run helped me find a troublesome spot in my 5/6 switch. A quick shim on the throwbar in it was back in service.
Hopefully December is as fruitful as November was!
