Track Gang found hard at work in Plattsburgh

Plattsburgh track work complete

Since the very successful open day on the D&H I have been hard at work building turnouts for the layout. As there are approx 40 turnouts needed, I figured I had better get stuck into building them as no more towns can be built with out them.

So over the last week or so I have built approximately 10 turnouts ready for the layout. I now have a well honed process and they are coming together nicely. I'm now almost 1/2 way through building the turnouts for the layout with 18 being completed.

Once I had built enough to complete the town of Plattsburgh I decided it was time to head back into the shed to get some track laying done. As the key main line and passing sidings were already in place it was just a matter of building on top of the basics. Before long, the track work in Plattsburgh was completed.

Below are a number of pictures showing the work that has been completed.

I have installed the turnouts on the back "house track" and powered up the house track. Hopefully the rest of the yard will be powered up in the next few days.

Here are the progress pictures.

The track plan on a few spurs has changed slightly from the plan, but only slightly.

Plattsburgh will have 8 industries to be services during an opps session and there are some complex switching moves in there also to make it a bit more challenging.

Thanks for checking in..

  1. That is going to be a very nice spot to switch. Might not see the train crew for several hours.
