I'm going to do a test run to make sure everything is working properly. I'll upload it once I'm done.

Well from my first progress report everything was okay for the most part. Just a few things need some fine tuning. A small patch of baseboard was left untouched and a few rough patches in the tracks need to be addressed as well. The operational evaluation clearly demonstrates that four GE C40-8Ws on the point and two helpers on the rear still left the train vastly under-powered for the train movement. So better distribution of motive power throughout the train will be vital going forward. So more powerful 4,400 horsepower locomotives and more units at the head end of the train, either five or six will be the norm here on out and some rear and even mid-train helpers as well. Now depending on how I feel I might take a couple days off and enjoy my other routes that I have and get back to work on the weekend.
