Milestone 100

The end of the turnout build

Today marked the completion of the turnout build.
Today I made turnout 100, 101 and 102. (This include the 37 hand laid turnouts on my last layout).

Now to cut the frog gaps, install the wood ties, pre weather and then install.

The layout will have 87 turnouts on it. 65 of those 87 are hand laid. Only the staging has Atlas Code 55 #5s installed.

I have 1 diamond to make then the track laying can start.

Stay tuned for the install.


  1. Congratulations Brendan. It takes some discipline to sit and build that many turnouts without wanting to start installing some of them.

  2. Nice job. In N scale they must be even more challenging, and I am very impressed.
