With the final op session until fall scheduled for this Friday evening, I have added a few details to the layout. In Northampton, an old wooden boxcar has been placed beside the Northampton Beverage plant and is being used for storage of glass bottles and bottle caps. I remember a similar wooden boxcar for storage being located near the CNR station near my home in Woodstock during the 1960s (click on photos to enlarge them):

I had a great weekend at the Maritime Federation of Model Railroaders (MFMR) convention in Halifax this weekend. Four members of our SJSMR club took our modules to be included as part of the public train show on Saturday. The Carleton Railway was represented by my six modules representing Monticello, Maine. Since our club's show last November, I have done a considerable amount of work on the two outside modules.
In the photo above, a train has just entered the Monticello yard. The busy commercial district can be seen in the background.
