Poor Ted

I am excited about getting some new base scenery built. After discussing the possibilities for extending the base scenery towards Shops from Ariel Church with friends, I have masked off the area and am ready to continue construction on the layout.

But wait, hold up a minute. Wasn’t there something I was supposed to be working on? Didn’t I promise some hoppers to somebody?

These BVM hoppers are for a friend. I agreed to build them so long ago that I have forgotten exactly when I make the commitment.

These hoppers will have pockets under the slope sheets full of buckshot, which will help their tracking on Ted’s layout ... assumingTed still has a layout when these cars are finally completed.
