First NS Yard Started

Since I made it thru the first yard on the WSS sub, I thought I would start on the NS staging yards. This one represents what will be Danville's Dundee Yard.

Although it bares no resemblance to the real Dundee Yard, it made for a good stage name. the will be an indentical yard on the other end and will be known as Charlotte.

The yard only took 2 evenings and a Sunday to complete even though I was trying to be careful about keeping the tracks parallel and straight.

I made a spacing stick and screwed it down between each rung, applied the glue, removed the spacer and double checked the spacing with a Kato rerailer. The rerailer has 3 sets of grooves on the side and is just right for spacing tracks.
