From the pictures you can get an idea of the finish level of this room of the layout. I'll still paint the floor as some point, but that will be as finished as it will get. I still have a lot of work to do, but I am happy with the progress. As you can see, I need to add a backdrop to the Rochelle area.
The UP/BNSF crossing signals made it through the move pretty much unscathed. Screwing the margarine containers over the signals worked beautifully. It'll be interesting to see if they will still light up when connected to the signal driver.
Part of Global III did not make it into the new configuration so a new section had to be added. The new configuration will be an improvement since the old Global III was curved an it is now prototypically straight.
Next up will be bench work and track for the Wheaton, IL area and then the layout will completed around the entire basement. My goal is to have that completed by August 1.
