O Scale Progress Winter-Spring 2010

During Winter-Spring 2010, the O Scale group's major winter time project was the double tracking of Santa-Fe Western block 5 connecting Midway, Arrival, and Departure divisions. The construction, wiring, and panel updates were completed by opening day. The result has been a much improved flow of traffic between the three divisions. Another large project was the re-tracking of the diesel service yard adjoining the Midway Engine Terminal. There are now inbound, outbound and turntable tracks controllable from either the Midway Engine or Diesel Yard panels. We also added two new industrial spurs in the area. In total, thirteen turnouts were built for these projects. Additional scenery work on the south mountain is underway.

Interurban: additional scenery work in the Churchill yard area including the 1930's gas station, a cattle loading area, a new custom built freight building, and the Three Palms track maintenance area.

On the Euerka & Empire On3 layout, the lower Eureka yard was raised to match the standard gauge track levels. Yard trackage and turntable with roundhouse has been installed and is ready for wiring. There will also be an interchange for two industries from the SFW Pt. Richmond passenger yard leads.

Most of the X10 wireless surveillance cameras have now been replaced with high resolution wired cameras. These all feed into a 16-port video multiplexor switch from which they can be grouped, sequenced or combined for output to video monitors in the control areas.

For OSCI, the Arrival panel has been updated with push button routing controls for the east arrival yard tracks. --Jeff Rowe, O Scale TrainMaster
