Casper Construction Progress – 2019
Even before we moved, I was fiddling around with ideas for track plans (or course). But I didn't do very much except daydream, because we had a lot to do on our house in Merchantville to get it ready to sell.
Once we moved to Casper and settled in a bit, I did have time to start messing around with track plans. Lots of time, because I needed to finish the train room before I started building this fifth version of the CB&Q in Wyoming.
I did produce an update video in December, chronicling the track planning process to that point, introducing the new layout space, and giving a brief recap of the previous four versions of the layout:
On December 22nd I started finishing the train room, laying a row of waterproof, dimpled high-strength plastic. This spaces the subfloor about 1/2 inch above the concrete, providing just a bit of insulation and allowing some airflow over the concrete to dry out any moisture that may form on top of the cement.
