Custom Turnout Build Finish

 The turnouts that were custom built and mentioned in a previous post [insert] have been installed.

Ties were placed singly with plain old Elmer's white glue, sanded and then the turnout was spiked down.

I ended up having to redo the ties for the turnout closest to the aisle when I mis-installed ties and cut them too short. A round of "WWKD" made me pull the ties and fix it.

Working alongside a Christmas gift - new light to go along with my new driver/drill set.

The back track is a stick of Code 70 ME flex, but as the front spur is too short for a full piece, I refrained from cutting a stick of 70 down for it as I'm into my last bundle of it. Got to keep my eyes peeled for a sale in the future.
