Continuing with the Oakridge yard project (photo 3), using the wood spacers to speed the process and lighten the yard. This yard is an experiment, but seems to be working out all right. The advantage of this construction method is the ability to build the most graceful curves possible. The disadvantage is how time consuming and tedious it is. You can see that the backdrop suffered quite a bit of wear due to this work and will need more putty and paint.
The climb up to the logging area (photo 4) was completed tonight and the support pylons to hold the subroadbed at the proper elevation were added. In photo 3 you can see the siding that leads to the logging area from the other end. There will be a run-around track and at least one siding up on that level.
