And we have a yard! And its backwards from the plan! I started to layout the yard and where the operator was going to stand and quickly realized that there was going to be some congestion. I decided to rework the whole yard by flipping it around and I actually like this better. Here is the latest plan with the green tracks being the completed portion.
It took a bit or ripping up and reworking both corners to make it work. Then came the ladder. There was a small 2″ piece of flex track between each turnout that took a lot of time.
After that the rest of the yard came together fast(ish). I think this whole thing took about 7-8 hours to layout and tack down.
And of course, the rest of the time consuming part: wiring. All of the feeders are ready to be soldered and tied into the bus wire. That is tomorrows project.
