I occasionally wonder if the people who designed this basement, and the protective cover that is over it, were model railroaders at heart. Nice big open space, finished walls from day one, suspended ceiling, and a second staircase up to the garage, allowing the layout builder to trek up and down to the garage shop while cutting bits of wood needed for creating our miniature worlds.
But the extra stairs called for a liftout section and that task was tackled today. With the unseasonably warm weather, the garage was comfortable to work in. So we went from this;
With a little effort I can now lay track and will be able to run way freights from the St Thomas yard into the town of Aylmer.
Progress is good
