I had planned to do part 4 out in the hallway next but for some reason decided to do part 5 next instead, no I don't know why.
Anyway part 5 is adding a staging yard to the east end of the layout so I can turn the temporary staging yard into scenery and have a higher capacity (in tracks and cars) staging yard to boot.
The first pic is where the original yard was.





The next two pics show the new staging area to be.

I've been out of touch with RR-Line happenings. Good to see some progress. No progress on my layout. Been distracted by a part time job hauling railroad crews and life and family happening. Hard for me to think about hobby stuff with everything that's going on in the world.

Just wanted to respond to a comment on the previous page. My "eagle eyes" only work at six to eight inches away with my glasses off and anything any further away is a total blur. I can't even find my glasses if I lay them down somewhere due to blurry nearsighted vision. You can send some cars to Copperhill by way of Murphy Junction(near Blue Ridge GA).

All the track is glued down and wired and working. The dummy track on the left is for storing cars not in use for the session or part of the session. As the second picture shows I now have 5 square feet of new space for scenery!

Catt I figured you would say "about time Mike!" I'll get right on it Frank. Mark just more rural scenery so there is more distance between the staging yard and Tellico so I hopefully will get the feeling the train came from somewhere and is going somewhere. I'm trying to get away from the loco is in one town while the caboose still hasn't cleared the last town syndrome.

Got the backboard up on the layout. No backdrop yet, have to order more. Put up a safety board along the edges of the staging yard so nothing will hit the floor I hope. Started blocking up some land forms on the layout section. Someone asked me how I was going to get to my workbench with the yard in the way. The end of the yard that attaches to the layout slides over two bolts and is held tight with two nuts that are just finger tight. Remove them and pop the two prong wire connector apart and the whole thing slides right off. Takes less than two minutes to remove and replace.
