Fixed Rails Finished on South Section

Fixed rails done

Tonight I dropped the last section of rail onto the Lee Manufacturing siding and declared the track laying done, except the points on the south section. Interestingly, this was the first time I used one of the Proto:87 Stores rail joiners, all the other rails on this section being only one length long for now. The rail joiner worked great.

I have a little job to do on the underside before the points can be installed. So, I’m going to stand the layout up on its end for a while, and get the bus wires and feeders all tied off before installing the points.

Of course, the deadline for this section is long past. But, I do think I was getting faster at laying track. So perhaps all is not lost for my goal of running trains for New Years.
