Yard 8 tracks laid

My version of "Yard 8" is completed. Still much to do. Solder all joints, install tortoise switch machines on the main tracks, install ground throws on the yard tracks and wire all of it up.

I need to work on staging bench work the bridge and mill modules before laying any more track. With a whole weekend off I may be able to get that done and the other home projects on the honey do list.

Work Update

Mounted the yard modules on benchwork, painted the surface and laid out track centerlines. Need to complete 2 more modules for the visble sections to be complete. Staging benchwork is next though before installing the module that runs across the front of the closet door. Last item to tackle is the bench work for harbor piers.

Work Progress

I have been assembling the sections over the last week, only a couple of more to do. Keep vacillating about the lift bridge area and whether or not to keep it or make it more of Commercial Street. I will have to decide before I make that module as the bridge scene will require a cutout for the water section.
