First two staging tracks completed
The molded roadbed section was cut from part of a section of Unitrack then some Atlas ties were slipped onto the rails.
I am still learning about building turnouts. While the Fast Tracks jig is very helpful in setting up the turnout, I have learned to check throughout the turnout with the NMRA track gauge and make any fine adjustments needed to bring it into spec. The plan is to get lots of practice building the code 80 turnouts for the yard then having that experience when it gets to building the code 55 ones for the scenicked parts of the layout.
