This week I completed the installation of the frog rails for turnout #3, which is part of the crossover with turnout #2 (shown partially assembled above it).

I completed the back rail of track #2. A little bit every day gets you there... eventually.

I finished installing another 3-foot section of rail. It runs from the frog point of turnout #2 down through the straight rail of turnout #3 into the straight rail of turnout #4.

I have updated my layout's track article with all the latest photos. I just finished the mechanical construction of the first turnout of the layout.

Work has been keeping me very busy, but progress is being made at a very slow pace on the layout. I have finally completed the first throwbar installation on the layout. I tried to get fancy, but in the end I settled for the "old reliable" printed circuit-board strip trick.
