Crisis averted

Believe it or not, I'm back in business. Thanks to Dil Huey who brought his spare power supply. We spent the morning troubleshooting, replacing and testing I/O boards. 4 of 26 were toast. 2 others had small problems, but I could move wires around to good places. The rest are working st this time. I spent the afternoon reprogramming the software to match the changes.

All toasted items are out for repair

Troubles in Paradise

Today I turned on the layout and I heard a pop, but I didn't know what it was. Then I smelt it. There was an electrical problem somewhere. The regulated power supply was is supposed to put out 13.8 vdc was putting out 26.6 vdc. This caused at least two I/O's to smoke. There maybe more. I won't know until I can replace the power supply.

This may cause the cancellation of a few op sessions.

The cavalry is on the way tomorrow and maybe then we can see the extent of the damage.

Acadia hasn't been photographed in a while. So I added some vehicles and here you are.

Bucksport is done

Some final pictures of the work in Bucksport. I used to think I had a lot of vehicles, but they are getting absorbed fast. Super detailing will come later.

Working on Searsport

Starting on the north end of Searsport and working on hiding the hole in the wall. When everything else dries I have some trees to plant that will help hide it. I think the backdrop is doing a pretty good job so far.

Time to start Searsport

I thought I would get a start on Searsport and I made a big mess. Then I realized how many available days I had left before the next Op Session. Not a good move on my part. I will be extra busy getting everything tidied back up.
