Continuing progress on staging yard

Work has resumed on the upper section of the staging yard which will serve as the western terminus on the layout for the Western Pacific.

I have been building more Fast Tracks turnouts and put three right hand ones together to make the yard ladder shown in this photo.   Using the yard ladder as a guide, the cork road bed was completed to tie in the road bed from the yard tracks with that coming off the turn around loop bridge.

Also 6 more Tortoise turnout motors have been received and 3 of those will be used to power this yard ladder after the track is installed.
At the other end of the yard the section of the upper yard deck that had been left open has been completed by inserting a section of 1/2 inch plywood.

After this photo was taken the bare wood was painted both on the top and bottom to seal it.
