Finally! I got a free minute to work on my layout. Its been very busy, and I lost a week to the nasty flu that is going around.
I went to Lowe's and bought two sheets of 15/32nds plywood with a sanded side. The cut the 32 inch board shown above, a 5" board for the hidden staging, and cut the other board short one foot.
This sheet has been through the wringer, but can give you an idea of the cookie cutter job we need to do.
Here are two of the strip boards for the hidden staging. I'll start drawing the cookie cutter and track center lines this week. Hopefully we can begin cutting next weekend. I need to run some trains!!!
