Since my last post about a week ago, I got the staging yard permanently installed in the layout. Prior to installing the yard, I removed the display case and the support brackets for the upper deck so I could spray paint the brackets white.
The yard is secured to the walls and also is supported by two large sturdy support brackets. A third bracket was planned but after the first two were in I decided a third was not needed. Spacing is 48 inches between brackets.
Also did some paint touch ups on the wall in this area.
I prefer not to mount all the electronics under the bench work so I used a left over 2 ft square piece of 3/4 inch plywood to make a place for wall mounting of the circuits. This is at the entry end of the yard and has a hinged Plexiglass door to protect everything. More on this in a future post.
