Well the track is finally down, except for our connector to module two.
So what was learned? A lot!
(1) Nothing beats planning, especially since material, whether it is track, or wood costs money. Paper and pencil are still relatively cheap.
(2) If following a prototype, gather as much information as possible. It has not been until recently that I have been able to gather more information on the Keeney Creek branch.
(3) When making my module plan, include the electrical plan as well. I did write this on the bottom, but in my zeal to get the track laid, I failed to put in one set of feeds. I will fix this, but now it is a retro fit vs a construction process.
(4) Make a plan for the scenery and structures. I have no idea what we are going to have for a coal tipple on our version of Lookout. Since I did not spend my time gathering research, I did not have an idea of what the area looked like or what structures I should include, and where to include them.
The growing pains of going from experimental modules to a more finished product. An evolution step, with plenty of lessons for module two!
