The first picture is from the extreme left (south) side of the staging yard. Track will be 33" from the floor. I built a framework from 3" pieces riped from 3/4" plywood.
This next picture looks railroad north as switches are test fit to make sure what fit in XTrkCAD fit on wood.
This picture shows how the framework was constructed; there doesn't seem to be much deflection. :)
Everything put together and ready for paint.
Some trackwork and mounting tortoise switch motors.
At this point, the closing ladder is mostly in place, and I only need some addition track and tortoises to complete the pre-wiring phase for the staging yard.
