- Install track
Most folks probably remember the access hole I cut in the drywall to get track to the north end staging yard.
|As seen here|
I tried to layout the track so I could start laying out the roadbed and staging yard ladder. I figured that starting on the ladder would allow me to rehone my turn out building skills in a spot where it doesn't have to be pretty, just functional.
Step 1 was getting the track arrangement through the way right.
I printed out the track plan in 1 to 1 scale and got it taped together.
The planned 33" radius curve didn't fit. A 30" radius curve wouldn't fit either.
Queue the head scratching and out comes the tape measure. Turns out I had mis-measured during benchwork and hole building so I didn't have the clearances I needed.
Out came the drywall saw for a fix.

I put the cut drywall piece back in and proceeded to get it mudded.
