    Using Liquid Nails and a putty knife to spread out the Liquid Nails I attached the inside track.





    Next I moved on to gluing down the roadbed for the outside track.





    Then attaching the outside track. In progress photos.





    Finished attached track.





    Ran some test trains and time to move to next step.

    Tom,

    Looks like a weighty subject. Doing a lot of heavy lifting lately. I was going to add that you must be under a lot of pressure, but I think it's the track.

    Started gluing down the roadbed. Working on the inside track first.







    Need to run to the hardware store and grab some Liquid Nails or something similar for attaching the track.

    Nice track work. Do you like the foam better than cork?

    Scott
    Around here I don't have much choice as the cork is as rare as hen's teeth. As a matter of fact I have not seen any in my hobby shops visits over the last six months.

    Now I placed the foam roadbed in the area where I am going to do scenery. I laid the track back over the roadbed to make sure everything fits.







    Looking the other way





    I am using Woodland Scenics foam roadbed. I will eventually cut around the turnouts when I finalize those areas. Where there is no paint the roadbed is temporary,

    Using Woodland Scenics transition sections I added 2% temporary transitions from the foam board to the foam roadbed.





    Test trains have been successfully run through the section. I plan on doing one or two run by trains. After that I will glue the roadbed in place in the area where the passenger station will go.

    Thanks!

    The first area I am going to scenic is where the passenger station will be placed.

    Frist job is to paint the foam board.





    Next is to relay the track and outline it for the roadbed.

    The station looks really good! you made the correct call on the weathering.
    I really like the last two shoots.
