Well, it’s been several days since this site was first developed and only now am I getting to the point of continuing on with “current” events.
As can be seen from the overhead photograph, the new yard is in. Work continues to connect all the drops to the main buses. We have also started to plan the engine facility including the service tracks. Lastly, the new diamond was installed!
This is a custom designed double by double track diamond. The mains cross each other at 67.7 degrees. Clearly it’s not your typical ready made piece of track!
The Essex County Model Train Club is contemplating manufacturing custom diamonds to meet those odd angles that we as modelers often find we are faced with. Please contact us for additional information.
On Saturday June 25, 2016, Matt Herman from ESU will be at Action Hobbies Kingsville to demonstrate the new Full Throttle decoder and its features. Matt will utilize the ECMTC layout for his demo. All are welcome.
