These are great little units for track occupancy on a DCC layout. I also tried them out with DC but they seem to be for DCC only. I do have something in mind for these and that project will be the subject of the next post.

The unpainted part is just a handle and will be cut off before placing them into the scene.

Of course this left a funny looking spot and my first thought was to try to build up the scenery around the track to hide the fact that the track was not firmly on the cork road bed. Then I got an idea to create something more interesting. This could have been an area were moisture had been seeping out of the hillside above and the erosion had created a minor washout and sink in the track. I wanted to model an area where the track crews had improved the drainage, shored up the right of way, and straightened out the track.

Since last October when I started the Palisade Canyon extension to the layout there have been two dead end lines with no way to actually run a train all the way through. That all changed a few days ago when things got completed enough to put in a new turn around loop.
