Staging Yard - Yard Lead installed...

I took delivery of the Peco - Code 100 SL-95's to begin the yard lead for the Staging Yard.

There are 5 x SL-95's and 1 x SL-86 to make up the Staging Yard lead.

































The turnouts will be controlled by a Digitrax DS64 and MP5 - Switch Motors.


 

The Staging Yard will also have detection installed at a later day through a Digitrax BDL168.

Another Staging Deck section completed...

Today I completed the next section of Staging Deck.  This section house the last of the storage tracks before the next yard ladder, and the beginning of the double return loop.


The timber frame work for the deck is pretty quick to construct, and is easily assembled.



As like all of my bench work it is screwed together if anything needs to be removed, and/or altered.


More soon.

Staging Deck Corner...

Today I spent the day getting the corner section of the staging deck installed.


The starting radius (mainline) will begin at 28" R, and every track above that will 2" (55 mm) centre to centre, so roughly a 2" gain in radius for each track.


The edge of the staging deck is set back about 1/2" (15 mm) from the fascia edge, so when I install a fascia drop curtain it will sit flush with the staging deck.


I'm just waiting on a few more Peco Code 100 turnouts to come in and I will be installing the first section along with the curved staging too.
