Thats not the screw pattern we have been using latly in the photo, I think I built this track panel before I talked to Bill and some guys back east in Ma. about the screw patten to use, and how its better in the long run. This may explain way we have some track movement. I'll see if I can take a photo this weekend. Do your home work and get lots of info on setting your track down or you will be working on your track all the time.

We are still working on replacing wood ties but we are making good headway on this project. all thats left to be replaced on the main line is two panels just before the return switch on the whipper table, two panels on the return lead for the whipper table, one and a half panels just past the in lead track to the whipper table, and theres maybe 20 tie just before the baseball crossing. There maybe a few more on the Crenshaw line but there not a big deal. The old Crenshaw passsing siding has a few panles and theres a few in the yard as well. There are also wood switch ties that need to be replaced: the two at the whipper and two are three in the yard. We have lone ties to do that but it just takes a good amount of time to do it as they have to be done on the ground one at a time so the switch doesn't get out of line.
