Construction update

The house addition is well underway, with the carpentry work being done now on the interior.  Today the electrician is wiring the basement.  Completion date for the addition is December 15; then I will begin expanding the railway with the hope that the first train will run over the enlarged layout by September 1, 2018.  The addition will provide 17' x 23' of railway layout space (including a crew lounge), so I expect the main line to expand by 160' (in addition to the current 260' main line), and a new terminal in Millville will be added.  So the main line will be 420+ feet long.
