About to start the Mining site level. Tunnels all done. Track layout in place.
More structures to come, Roundhouse for one. If we get rain in July I may build it. But more work on rolling stock and and switch controls is the first priority.
A little bit done on the track layout but most of the effort this month is on rolling stock and the conversion to DCC

Forgot about the programing track. With DCC you need a separate track to program locomotives. There it is.
