I couldn’t resist and have started laying ties on the new layout. I think I’m going to try and get these first ones sanded and stained, then lay in the first length of rail. Rather than try and wait until everything is in place before to get something running I’ll focus on this short length first and then go from there go keep morale up.
It’s been a terrific Saturday afternoon. There’s a nice beef bourguignon simmering away in the oven and I’m enjoying a glass of red wine leftover from that. We’ve got some Christmas music playing and Charlottetown’s Christmas parade is this evening. What a terrific Saturday.
