HOn30 Wood Deck Bridge
Welp, it's been a while once again since I've posted anything... But I have been pretty busy with work and I've managed to squeeze in some hobby work! And her is something I'm quite proud of, a 100% scratch built Wood Deck Bridge!

It still needs a lot of tweaking, nut, bolt, and washer details added and it's own bridge deck for track. This one I'm borrowing from another bridge in progress. The only thing I didn't make myself are the rails, or the stone supports.
Panamint Engine Facilities Updated
Just like with Ballarat, I added a new active sand house here in Panamint Jct. It looks much more organic to the scene now, compared to what used to be there.
The Panamint Jct. Engine House
One thing I seem to have neglected was that the "engine house" had no means of venting locomotive smoke! So I have gone back and added vents so that the crews aren't smothered by the exauhst from their iron horses. And as small a detail as it is, I think it's added a LOT of character!
Loading trestle
And here we have a loading trestle. This is used for the transfer of large "bulk" items, so to speak. It's more so for loading railway equipment if it's in dire need of some sort of rebuild of maintenance that the Ballarat shops can't handle. Or for bringing it new locomotives or rolling stock.
Panamint Freight Transfer
I decided to make a few changes to the Panamint Jct. yards and revamped the freight transfer station. Sadly they're inactive and maybe Pencil will update them to actually load and unload freight. I used a pair of them, tuned opposite to each other and butted up back-to-back to form the platform. The "office" is a station building of some sort by Hobbyman350 and from the DLS.

Personal Quote: In the Lawless West, I am the Law, I am RENEGADE.
Yep! Sorry all, things have gotten utterly insane in the past few weeks. I even took a trip up to Athens late October and haven't even had the time to really write to you about that! >_<

But anyway, as much as I absolutely LOVE my job at the news studio here in Albany, GA... my personal life is almost non-existent... A certain family member is taking advantage of my finances yet again, and the number of true friends I've made I could count on one hand and still have fingers left over. I may have a great job, but it's not worth keeping if I'm miserable outside of my job. So while I was on my vacation to Athens I managed to get an interview, which I nailed and was hired on the spot. However the job is less ours, likely less pay, BUT I believe my personal and home life will be much more satisfying! And I won't be forced to be awake past midnight nearly every night of the week! :D

Anyway, my official move date is Nov 23, so it's close. Sadly I can't move everything in one shot. Just not enough room in the Kia Soul I'll be using. However I plan on coming back down to Albany between then and Christmas to fetch the rest of my worldly possessions. But I hope to move the bulk of it and the "Important" stuff *cough-model-trains-cough* up this round. 

Anyway, that's all for now.
