It's been a rough 18 months
I haven't been on the site for quite a while. At my age we start loosing loved ones at an alarming rate. Dec 2015 we lost my mother-in-law at 92, somewhat expected but will be missed. Mar 2016 lost my kid brother at 57. This set me back almost a year recovering. Nov 2016 we lost my wife's cousin that had been taking care of my mother-in-law before she passed. Her cousin was diagnosed with bone cancer and 6 weeks later was gone.
I hope to get back on soon. Layout work gradually continuing. I never realized how long it would take to ballast 450+ feet of track. I will post pictures soon.
I hope you are all in good health and doing well with our hobby.
