After a hectic week that included my daughter's wedding in Aspen, Colorado, 5 rounds of golf at different courses in Colorado, a very late night arrival home, a visit from a old friend, two golf lessons, a class in 3D computer aided machining, going to work and the usual chores, I was able to get some track laying done on the Aquia Line.
I managed to complete 3 more turnouts. That means I have only one turnout left and about 10 linear feet of track to lay. It's hard to believe after so many years of being under construction, all the track is nearly done.
Dr. Steve Clarson was in town for a conference. He, Alicia and I, had dinner and then toured the layouts. It's always fun to chat with Steve. Being a native Yorkshire man, he described the Aquia Line as, "brilliant." You got to love those British accents and dialects.
