Meanwhile, other areas of the layout are receiving structures, scenery and other details.

Above, an SP unit rolls light through Austin on the BC&G mainline, while below, another rolls

Doc Moore is amazed at the progress on the trackage at Union Station!


It's June and things are happening! Above, the staging area under the BC&G main freight yard is about to see
some action, as below, Eddie Aycock gets ready for the BC&G's first operating session, which will take
place in early July.

Getting ready for the ops session.

Check back in October 2011 for the next BC&G quarterly update, which with luck should include
coverage of the driving of the gold spike on the BC&G mainline and the first operating session!

More BC&G action!
