Laying track

OK, I haven’t actually leveled the entire layout area–which you’re supposed to go before starting. But I couldn’t wait 🙂

So here’s my start on track laying: the station siding and rail yard area, plus the first turn on the house end of the layout. I hope to get the full oval laid out this week–but who knows with the crazy Kansas weather?


Almost done with dirt


Here’s the “almost final” terrace with most of the dirt in place. It took a lot longer than I expected to get all the topsoil in, because of work, weather, and weariness 🙂

I’ll try to level it all this weekend, and hopefully be able to lay track soon.
