All Resistors Installed, on to Weathering

Just finished installing the last of the resistor wheel sets. I did just over 300 in all. Every regular freight car has a resistor. I only did every third car on the two 40 car coal trains since they are permanently coupled together. Now its on to weathering. I have 5 locomotives to weather and close to 100 freight cars to do. I think I am going to hold off on body mounting all the couplers and instead concentrate on filing points on turnouts and body mounting only those cars that exhibit derailment trouble. Once I get all the rolling stock caught up, I will install the BNSF loop and then start ballasting, roads, structures, bridges details, etc.
