So i started messing around with the fasha. 20200322_165101.jpg 20200322_165052.jpg 20200322_165112.jpg and then finally got to a finishing point. So I did this. 20200327_110120.jpg 20200327_110130(0).jpg 20200327_105527.jpg there will be a highway in the middle of this side with the rock on it going to the back some place.

    UPDATE!!!!.....I always wanted to do that, don't know why. This is a shot of my work space.20200331_132947.jpg I don't know how anything ever gets done, but this is what I have been doing. 20200331_132907.jpg 20200331_161746.jpg 20200331_161801.jpg 20200331_161825.jpg and this is where that small rail goes. 20200331_161854.jpg right smack in the middle of that three way turn out. This is some pictures of the three yard ladders I have been working on. 20200331_133123.jpg 20200331_133104.jpg so now I'm going to work on the engine facility ladder. I am still waiting on the USPS to get me my stuff, otherwise I am running out of pieces to work with. Maybe it's because of the Earth quake hear in Idaho!

    This is where it starts to look like you have something. 20200406_155517.jpg This is the tip you will need for the next steps coming up. and the glue that I like is Pliobond I get mine4 from Fast Tracks, 20200406_154132.jpg I have glued the rail backs in a small section, you don't want to much. 20200406_155231.jpg While that is setting up cut the ties that you will need for the aria that you glued. Then place them under the rail, I made this jig it is purty slick for this. 20200406_155206.jpg Then set the glue. 20200406_155402 (1).jpg this is what I did for clearance for that set of points. 20200406_161328.jpg It only took about 30 min. to do all of this. 20200406_163451.jpg

    @Comfortably numb I don't know if any of this will work, just my thoughts. Do you (or a friend) have access to a 3D printer and could make up mounting brackets for your motors and then, using heavier gauge wire, put a plastic drinking straw or light plastic tube down through the foam and pass the wire up through it?

    I was looking at some Nie Rod. It is what R/C fliers use to move the surface on the wings, with that I can mount the servio any place. So for the four or five turnouts that I put over braces I can still get to them. I don't know anyone with a 3D printer, I will need to find a mount that I can mount two momentary switches to for the frog. Thanks for the Idea!

    I'm a little concerned by the weight in the front loaders bucket
    Thanks, Tom

    Expect nothing except the opposite of what you expect, and then expect it to be something other than that ! Then that's about what it will be
