Well, it’s been a while since I’ve worked on the layout, but I am back at it once again.
The mainline has been re-routed on the new Bottleneck benchwork. My plans now include a “Main Street” type of small town for Bottleneck with the RR tracks running across the highway and one branchline that will lead to the Rock Ridge Yard running right down Main Street, with businesses and all the things you would find in a rural small town of the 1950s. Next job will be to complete the roadbed, lay some more track and connect up the Rock Ridge Yard branch line.
The first image above is the installation of another curved switch made by John Wickham (jscottw on ebay). These are high quality and are very well made.
