|Telegraph installed and working at Brooke|
Amby stopped by this morning to help finish the installation of the telegraph system. He ran the last cable to Falmouth while I finished building the panels for Brooke and Falmouth. All went fairly smoothly except for me accidentally installing the Falmouth panel at Brooke. That was an easy fix.

First I wet the fascia to allow it to bend more easily. Then I glued and screwed the plywood to the fascia. After a few hours it was ready for cutting the hole with the jig saw.
Special thanks to Amby, Seth, and Steve for their help in getting this system designed and built, installed and tested.
With the telegraph done, now we need to get the track finished. Just about 5,000 spikes to go.
