Module Updates

This module was designed to spark less conventional modeling and to encourage out of the box designs. This may not appeal to everyone, however, it adds humor and plays on the rumors that  UFO's take cattle, Toss in the Chick Fil A breadboards and you have a topic for some discussion.

Track crews have been doing their maintenance work on the Green Line right close to Ruins.

Here's a update on the two corners: Track improvements are finished and ballasted and now have red to orange and orange to red on each corner. Some poorly done track work has been repaired.

I arrived at Joe's 7:15 AM and we proceeded to test the Gray Rock's Orange and Red lines including the Frog Juicer. As soon as we hit it with track power...short!
