I’m about to run around!

Over the past week and holiday, I was able to complete laying the track for the Sugarwood Yard and I started laying the sub-roadbed to complete the east end of Sugarwood Siding.

There is not a whole lot to be said about laying the track in the yard it is pretty straight forward. Thought I did want the yard to look like it has been around for a while so I did not use a straight edge to lay the yard perfectly straight, as can be seen in the two photos below.



To connect the east end of Sugarwood Siding I decided to go with the spline roadbed approach and I find it easier and faster than I thought. I am using 1/8” x 1/8” basswood glued to the foam. I have been surprised that how fast the glue dries, about thirty minutes after laying a spline I can remove the pins and lay another spline. Towards the upper center of the top photo and left center of the bottom photo, the east end of Sugarwood siding can be seen.

Until next week.
