No work at all during October (busy month), but yesterday I got a bit more done and reached a major milestone - the first locomotive operated over a section of track! Here's one of my kids w/ the first train

It was just on the short section of track running between Dolores, thru the laundry room, and into the bathroom. Because that wiring had to be done as the track / bridge was created, it's wiring is done and I was able to hook up a power pack and test-run a locomotive.

My kids were so thrilled they immediately put a Lego guy or two atop the locomotive and shuttled him back and forth between the laundry room and bathroom for nearly an hour! The immediate focus for now is to start building the sub-bus networks of wiring, and tying in the rest of the existing trackwork...
