More Progress on the M & M Sub.
Slowly, it's coming along. The basic benchwork is almost completed. Next up: Installing cross pieces to support the two-inch Styrofoam (which will provide the subroadbed). I put the turnback piece of Styrofoam on top of the benchwork just to see how it would fit; it originally was the upper level loop, so it's in the same location as before--just lower.
In addition to providing a place for the trains, the benchwork provides an additional 32 feet of shelf space for the family's stuff; it's amazing how things accumulate!
The goal remains running trains on the new area by Christmas; we'll see if that happens.
