Brian, I don't know where you get the energy to do all the work you do in one day! It all looks great and sounds like you have quite a bit of more on your plate! I will be watching as I learn from most of you here.

Paul, looks like your on the right track! I hope things hold together for you and your happy with the out come!

As for me there were no train stuff today! I spent the day with my very new GRANDDAUGHTER! what a little thing but has a great smile!20171015_10360220171015_103613

Yes, I recall your Harpers Ferry layout.  The platform for the river looks great.  Since it is a separate piece of bench work, I agree making it roll out would be pretty easy to do.  How much more access would that give you?

Before I put in the river floor I could climb under and come up between B&O double main line bridge along wall and Shenandoah sub truss bridge.   My plan for future access is to suspend the supports for the B&O bridge from the existing wood plank support.   Those supports will simply rest on top of the Aquatex river surface.   The supports for the Shenandoah and Bollman Truss (silver) bridge may 'slide' on surface of river when I slowly pull river bed table out.  This means that I will not glue or attach supports or scenery to river.  For now I'll just be glad to get the aquatex installed.   Will post progress pics.

Took a long several month hiatus during the summer, it was cycling season.  Now that I have to heal from a torn rotator cuff and separated shoulder I am cleaning the track to prepare for a lot of one armed projects.  Test run should be later this evening.

Wow!  I'm sorry you were injured!  That is a hard way to make time for trains!!

Had to start the day getting the car ready for York but I did manage to find a bit of time to work on the layout, a little not much. I finished gluing the stone paper to the backs of all the walls. So far Elmer's white glue is holding firm. I had some prairie grass left so I added some near the Morton Salt building. Probably will not do too much more tonight and for that matter tomorrow because we will be heading for York Wednesday morning. Got my list of wants ready to go but I always seem to find more stuff off my list then on LOL.............Paul

That's for sure Bob, I have 3 on the hook already! The one problem I have is I don't have a lap big enough for them all and that's where they all want to sit! LOL

Paul,

Have a great time at York!  Look for me, since I don't know what you look like.
