    I laid cork over the last 2 days . I used a few pins to hold it down while the glue dries . This is the engine service area . Once the pins come out i will sand the cork and fill the gaps with spackle .

    I finally finished up the last of my ballast work - always a happy day in the life of a layout



    I also finished up this cornfield - which is a bit of a relief since I seem to have virtually exhausted the national supply of Bluford Shops corn

    It looks great, Mark! (Also explains why futures on scale corn jumped this week!)

    Did the servo install on the turnout, and got inspired to build a switch stand from the same servo to provide an indicator of main or diverging.

    im currently trying my hand at ballasting for the first time, but not quite ready for prime time!

    Any pics or video of your mechanism? Is the switchstand sign just poked into a hole in the center of the servo or does it have a linkage of its own?

    Sorry, just saw this question.
    It has its own linkage.

    Heres a video prior to final adjustments from below where it is easier to see what is going on.
    Upper is the turnout, minimal rotation angle needed, but bottom is the switch stand, lots of rotation angle needed, which it gets from Being so close to the servo

    @Onizukachan Thanks for that video. A picture's worth a thousand words and a moving picture even more!
