I've had the track laid over homasote and on the benchwork for a couple weeks now, but had to take a week or so off for a vacation out of the country. I have all of my power drops run using 16ga wire, but not soldered yet. I'm currently working on wiring the turnouts and operational tracks (which I need some help with, please see my thread asking the question about this) using 20ga wire. Here is what it looks like so far.
Oh, and of course my helper is right by my side as always.
