current projects

A few more DCC installs are in process. A CPR D-10 in brass (PFM), a Spectrum Doodlebug, and a P2K GP38-2. These will keep me busy for the rest of the week at least.

The brass loco will prove to be the most time consuming. Electrical pickup is poor at best. Extra wipers will need to be added where possible, and the motor will have to be isolated from the chassis.

There should be just enough room above the motor to fit the decoder in the cab itself, rather than resorting to a tender installation.

doesn't take long...

...to get behind with progress reports and postings.

There certainly has been a lot of activity over the summer, most of which has had nothing to do with model trains or machining. However, now that autumn is upon me, these activities have picked up significantly.

As a matter of fact, there are now TOO many projects to give appropriate attention to each one. That means some of them will have to get refused, or put on the back burner indefinitely.
