Reply to "What did you do on your layout today?"

The Summit is in the garage awaiting warmer weather for ballasting, detail painting and scenic greenery.  In the mean time I have been working on the lighting for that area.  The yard lights are wired, tested, and attached to the filler strip that will be glued between the taconite loading tracks.   I have also wired and added exterior building flood lights to some of the plant buildings.   I am using a 6volt DC power source so resisters were added.  They came with the lights and are needed for power sources greater than 3 volts. It still needs to warm up before the buildings get the final color coat and weathering.  I am hoping for a nice January thaw in the coming weeks to get it all done.   It is currently, -2 outside.

I am also replacing all my fascia toggle switches with rocker switches.  DPDT for the switch machines and SPST rockers for the track sections.  Radio Shack has some good liquidation pricing on the internet with free shipping for orders over $19.  The toggle switches would occasionally catch on clothing, belt loops, etc when walking by. The rocker switches provider a much smoother passing.
