Well I guess it's time to call in the track crew. Here's a pic of the layout as it stands thus far. I've got to head back to work tomorrow after a couple of snow days but I managed to get this much done. Still need to do a light sanding of the cork roadbed to knock off any irregularities and high spots but then I can start laying track.
I haven't completely finished cutting near my turnouts, I always like to leave a little excess till I get the turnout in place. I also have yet to lay any roadbed on the other side of the gorge or install upper level track support there. I will wait to I get a better handle on my bridge and trestle placement before I do that but basically this phase of construction is about wrapped up.
More to come...
May the work of the incomparable John Allen
