"It's a brand new year and a chance for a renewed focus on model railroading! 2015 will be the year of the railroad. I plan on getting a lot of work done on the railroad this year and I plan to update this blog quite often with all of my latest efforts.That didn't happen. I had good intentions, but like a squirrel with ADD, I found myself distracted by all the pretty, shiny objects around me. I started and quit a webcomic. (That didn't work out.) Then summer came and The Witcher 3 got released and I put about 300 hours into that game. (My girlfriend did not appreciate that one.) Finally I discovered RC multi-rotors and airplanes in the fall. (That one got expensive quick.) The entire time my layout sat lonely in the basement with no one to give it the love it deserves. Something should be done about that.
Yesterday I turned the layout on and surprisingly everything runs fairly well. A good cleaning would be helpful for sure. I think my next steps are going to be getting stay-alive capacitors installed in my locos and continuing work on the scenery. I hope to have some new stuff to show on a timely and regular basis. With that, I'll leave you with the immortal words of Bart Simpson:
"I can't promise I'll try... but I'll try to try."
