Weekly Report No 132, CW 19

From Monday, 05.05.2003 to Sunday, 11.05.2003

The port celebrating it's anniversary and warm weather outside... The perfect day of a weekend to visit the Miniatur Wunderland since at such a weather the waiting time is reduced to zero.
The parade track is nearly finished and while Wolfgang lays down the last pieces of track, Dag is busy transferring the trackplan to the computer, thus enabling us to test-drive very soon.
And another "working pit" slowly but surely comes to an end: the airport is currently being detailed. Apart from the runway-markings, all fires and positioning lamps are built in.
