Locomotive Service Facility...

Over the last two days we have been in the process of installing the Rutherford Yard switch lead which leads into the future Locomotive Service Facility.

In order to get the track levels and alignment right I decided to start the service facility track work.  I had planned on a certain design but as normal it turned out to be a little different to the original on the plan.

The track to the left is the Gettysburg Interchange that runs into Carlisle Junction, the track on the right is the switch lead for Rutherford Yard that runs over the Susquehanna River over the new bridge that has been installed.

After the track design was finalised and photographed it was time to install the plaster/drywall sub roadbed to the service facility area.

Once some 3mm - 1/8" cork sheet arrives this will be placed over the plaster/drywall and the track work will be reinstalled.

I also installed the Midwest - Cork Roadbed to the switch lead & interchange tracks leading to the facility area.
