Weekly Report No 155, CW 42

From Monday, 13.10.2003 to Sunday, 19.10.2003

Well, the word is spread: Currently, the opening for the American section is planned for the first week in December. In a couple of days, there won't be any more visible plaster and the greenery helps to to create the impression that America will be finished ;-)

However, just like opening of the Hamburg section, we almost certainly will increase the train frequency on a daily basis. During the first days, not all available trains will run, since unfortunately one cannot compare real-time traffic with undisturbed test runs... Until christmas, I think, we will an acceptable train frequency. Same goes for the illumination. We hope that until then we have worked in our approx. 25,000 lamps into the day/night simulation. Las vegas, for instance, will most probably need a couple of months, until all lights work properly. Those having been to Las Vegas can certainly imagine the work amount waiting for us...

Lighting up Miami
