The east end of the layout is to have a return loop that will be above the Wesso section. The Wesso section has been completed for some time but I do not want to install it until I have built and installed the end loop section that will be above it and also some of the back drops that will be behind the Wesso section.
The end loop section of the layout will be supported by attachment to the walls and also by at least one bracket from above. Near the center of this photo can be seen an extra support and mounting hole for one of those brackets.
This east end return loop will be connected to another helix that will carry the tracks down to the Carlin section. With so much track length being within the helix I am considering using some sort of serial staging for the east end of the layout.
