The outside rail of Track #3 is now being worked on (see where the truck is on the track in the back). It flows into the frog for turnout #5, which is where I am at right now. The long strip of styrene is there just to get the rail up to the correct height, because it was a bit of a juggle to get the rail soldered at the frog, yet be cut at just the right length to fit in the rail joiner of the outside rail recently finished.

I completed the inside rail of Track #3 (the middle of 5 tracks). I am now working on its outside rail, starting from the far end in this photo, working back toward the two turnouts forming the cross-over between Track #2 and #3.

Work on the inside rail of Track #3 continues. I wrote an article about the glues I use.
