I finished building the second bridge (see my construction article), and then installed it.
This part of my layout will have the most complicated track work. I purposely wanted a crossing. On top of that one of its legs is curved! I am getting ready to lay the ties in the rest of the right-hand side of my layout.
I used the original templates to line everything up, so that I knew where the ties are to be installed.
The crossing's ties are in place.
The entire right-hand side of the layout now has its ties installed. It took me entire week of modeling time to do this side.
The next step: staining the ties.
