I had hoped to get started with Spring maintenance today, but rain killed that idea. Looking around the basement for something to do on the railroad I decided to cut a switch into my balloon track and add an industry and some live storage tracks on existing shelving.
The neat part about this is everything (including switches) was in-stock and all of the wood needed came from my scrap pile. All I have invested is time. The storage track will hold about 10 cars but must be loaded and emptied one car at a time due to the short length of a stub track. Kind if my own version of a switching puzzle.
Pictures and a diagram this evening once track laying it’s finished.
