Tuesday at the depot.

Posted on Jan 5, 2012 by in Random/cool, Updates |

I went down to the San Leandro Historical Railway Society last night for our normal Tuesday open hours.  I took the storage box I spent the last couple of days down with me.  Luckily, it fit in a decent location under the layout.  I have only three drawers in so far, but it looks like it will contain my entire collection with room to spare.

I also took the second building for the Del Monte plant for the San Leandro portion of the layout.  I had added roof details and completed some of the final details over the last couple of days.  The I still need to add the interior office and warehouse details and lighting.

I spent the rest of the evening test running my new Athearn Genesis GP-9.  It pulled a decent mixed freight train through the layout, but eventually skidded out when attempting to go up the helix at a 2% grade and a fairly sharp corner.  Overall I am very pleased with the operation and sound of this model.

I need to purchase the material to complete the shelves for my storage box.
