Johnathan, looks like you're gonna have it at least somewhat ready for your show. Nothing a little more paint and a few buildings won't solve at this point.

Hey Johnathan,
:( I guess I shouldn't have said anything about your progress! I started on a new layout almost a year ago and still trying to get some progress. I just got caught up with the 3D printing instead. I also was going to say something about the one track layout. My first one was a one track except in front of the station I had a run of two tracks. It get boring watching one train run around and around not much fun. This time I want to be able to run more than one train that way I can have one running while the others can be doing the things most trains do run loads from one place to another. :woohoo:
