Well, the track is down. I am about 75% done with wiring the blocks. Next is the control panel. I've been doing a lot of filing to get the trains to run smoothly. I was not a fan of the Atlas track going in, but chose it for economic reasons. Here's a few pics... The overall layout: Side view: The wiring spaghetti bowl: The good news is that everything is working so far and the trains can handle the grade at Cardiac Hill. The road rules include 40' max car length on mainline and yards and 30' logging cars on Disston Logging Branch. The Shay can only handle two cars on the logging branch at a time due to the length of the spur at the switchback (upper left part of plan) but could drag 3 loaded cars up if not for the siding length issue. So far, so good.
