Since this past Monday was a nice normal Spring day here in Colorado, as it should be this time of year, I was able to get out to the layout and had planned to run some trains.
That went by the wayside however, as I had to clean every piece of track with my track cleaning car. I also had to work on a switch stand on the backside of the original layout.
The switch stand had to be pulled off and the old cork base dug out, then replaced with a new, thicker piece of cork. The switch stand was then remounted, then re-ballasted around it.
This project and the track cleaning took up all my time Monday. Oh the joys of maintenance, but a necessary evil on a model layout as it is on the prototype. I was able to take one photo of old 5628 pulling the track cleaning car.
