Return Loop track laying begins...

Yesterday I started the installation of the outer and inner loops for the return loop section of the staging yard.



The original plan had the turnout for the inner & outer loop starting further up, I decided to try a curved turnout closure to the junction.  This worked out much better for flow, increased the length of the inner & outer loops and has made the detection sections better too.


 


The outer loop radius has been set at 30"R and the inner loop at 28"R, I'm again using the cork roadbed spacer to set the distance between tracks.



The hole has been cut through the real wall of my old workbench space and the outer loop aligned with the turnout that leads to the loop junction.



More soon...
