Pictures Included

Here's a good overview shot of the first and second sections of benchwork that will support Acca yard. There is approximately 9" of space to get your hands into the staging yard, if need be. I have a couple of small under cabinet style lights to put in so that the yard can be lit up if need be.

Here you can see the transition from the main lines into the yard limits area. The main line is the track farthest from you in this view, and you can just make out the ramp made of cork roadbed to put the main line higher up than all the yard tracks that will be laid directly on the homasote.

Here is the set of cross overs that allow trains to either bypass or enter the yard (Northbound) or to continue on the main or get to the switching area in the next photo after this.

Chesterfield industrial area - 3 industrial spurs; right now the plans include a LPG dealer, a lumber yard/building supply dealer and probably an small cartridge plant. Spur #3 is out of frame to the left. Eagle eyed readers will note the crossover that seems to have an outlet to nowhere - that is actually going to go to the (relocated in this world) Southern States grain elevator that is just across the river from downtown Richmond in real life.

Next post will be about my use of the fast tracks turnout jigs and beginning to put track down somewhat manually.
