In the past couple of weeks that I have been absent I have managed to lay some cork roadbed, and lay the lower level loop of track:
|The Three tracks around the peninsula|
After ordering some track from the UK on Tuesday, I had it in my hands by Saturday morning thanks to DHL, so that afternoon i began laying track:
|First track goes down|
|into the first curve|
|The crossover at Theta|
|On the left: the lower loop line. On the right: Superelevated main line.|
The next major step will be the integration of the Right-Hand Side helix, which should be arriving in the next day or two. That will be this weekends project, I plan to have the helix table build and possibly some track laid on the helix.
Photos below where taken after I did a bit of a cleanup.
