O Scale Progress Winter-Spring 2012

During Winter 2012, the O Scale group completed work on three major projects. Following the work started last Fall, the streets and sidewalks in the Pt. Richmond harbor and town areas were added. Street lights, signals and figures any many small details were also added to give a very nice appearance. Over two Saturday work days were needed to cover the south mountain extension with plaster cloth and a layer of plaster. It is now ready for rock castings which will take the remainder of the year to complete. Finally, we rebuilt the Arrival east yard ladder with number eight turnouts to match the other yard ladders and insure better tracking through the yard. A couple of additional yard stub tracks were added for way freight storage. Relay boards were added to the Midway panel for automatic route setting of the west and east ladders. A new electrical circuit was added for the computer area and the OSCI computer was installed and updated for the latest version of JMRI and OSCI. The video switch back panel was made more accessible and all the camera inputs relabeled to relate to actual position and direction of view. We also entertained the O Scale West visitors in February.

On the Eureka & Empire On3 layout, work progressed on the lower Eureka yard, scenery and building additions. A NCE DCC system was installed and testing is underway.
