      I'm not sure how much dampness you guys get out there. Probably about the same as Grant's Pass, which is minimal, compared with this end of the country. 

      I put a small stop on my TT pit, just to be on the safe side. It's a 3' drop to the ground.

      A little more progress on the Redding Yard area.

       

      I cobbled together a crossing to test the Consolidation and my largest Combine to to get a track pattern for the tightest  possible radius and still have it function smoothly. They are somewhere between 4-5 feet so should work at yard limits with no problems.  Building these bridge approaches on a radius and a grade is going to be fun.

       

       

      Well these are done, took some head scratching but I got them parallel, on a consistent grade and with smooth radius turns, now if they just work everything will be great.

       

      This is a little better view, the framing is level and the sheeting is angled on the grade using shims for solid support. The actual bridge span will be about 38 inches, plenty of room for a walk through.

      Oh Ya, it will be a lift bridge hinged on the right end (in this picture) probably a girder design.  I really wanted to use a Bascule design, like the Glouster Draw, but space limitations would't allow it.

      Got the turntable mostly installed today, the only thing left is the walkway and alignment connections once I install the trackage.

      Adding a rebuilt bridge to access the Redding Yards.  See the build thread here.     https://www.largescalecentral.com/forums/topic/29074/new-life-for-an-old-bridge/view/post_id/377532

      Now mostly just waiting on my switches from Switch-Crafters to get the yard tracks installed.
