      Another idea from the Ops Session that Stan Ames suggested was track leading to the coaling tower. I had to think about that one for awhile since I wasn't sure it would fit. So. I laid some flex track out and, sure enough, it looked doable.

      That should be able to service both the coal tower and the sand house. It just get's more and more interesting.................

       

      And with some of the dirt back in place.

      I'll have to wait till the dirt dries out a little more to finish this up. 

      Now to add this to the JMRI program.

      Looks like one car at a time in and out of there. Change out the far car and it's good for a whole morning !

      The sign of a healthy model railroad, is one that grows, is modified/changed as operational needs change.  A model railroad, just as a real railroad; is never finished.

          Just this week on the IPP&W, we added another industrial siding, and at the same time, discovered that we should again change a change we made the previous week.

      The "Change of a change" is to make the operation that much more interesting, and to prevent frustration.

           Ken; your railroad continues to show good health, and enjoyment, for those that have the privilege of operating it.  Keep up the good work, young fellow.
