Clay Hills International is a fictional location, influenced by several real life locations, with a dash of artistic licence thrown in for good measure.

February has been a good month. I've managed to get quite a few long term mini projects done. Which is good for the soul, as several significant tasks have been done as a result! The top is on and track laying can now begin again.

February Objectives Recap:
Reacquire a new, new Percy. Yeah... Still not happened.
Still watching, waiting for the right one.

Continue laying track on the lower level. The lower level is completed!
Continue the bridge...

It was a slow start to the year. However, relatively speaking, while not a lot on the top changed, quite a bit underneath advanced.

January Objectives Recap & Review:
Reacquire Percy. Been watching a few on the bay. Still not happy with the price mark ups.
Finish the foundations. Done!
Continue laying track on the lower level. 2 complete sidings laid down, 6 to go.
Continue the bridge build. This is once again, taking steps forward.

So as 2017 draws to a timely end, I thought it would be a fun idea to look back a year and see what I was doing on the layout this time last year.

I had thought that I had the baseboards partially in place and had at least started laying the incline foundations. Turns out I was several months ahead of myself there. I had barely started the incline corridor baseboard. It leaves me surprised at how much I have achieved in the year.

November has quite the month.

November Objectives Recap & Review:
  • Actually fix Percy. Yeah.
    Nope. Just going to buy a new one.
  • Begin building the foundations for the upper level. 95% done. I just need to put in place a central support.
  • Make a start on the double track suspension bridge kit bash. Started. Paused.
    Tools acquired, to be continued.
  • Build the baseboard section around the control panel, extend the track appropriately & sort the final plans

October Objectives Recap & Review:
Continue laying more track: In particular the lower level. More track got laid.
Just not in the preferential lower section.

Get the initial control panel into place and working. Done! A really good start on the panel has been achieved. Now to build around it.
Fix Percy properly, or have the parts on order at least. Yeah... oops.
Make a start on foundations of the top layer. I have the plans for the foundations forming in...
