worked 8+ hours, Picked up kids from daycare, Cooked them supper.
Then ran the Christmas loop for the younger ones for a half hour while I ate.
They still love it despite it being just a elongated loop.
Then I went into the Computer room and worked on designing the corner liftout for my benchwork in Solidworks 3D modeling software. That is ongoing, eventually the entire layout may be modeled.
Getting this corner liftout right is the key to the new layout. Without it I am dead in the water, I must have access to the basement behind it.
Once It is in place and working I can convert to around the walls for lots more space and trackage.
