    Finally bridged the gap between the helix and the upper level. The helix subroadbed is behind me, I’ll still come back clean up the helix and add some removable fascia panels on the outside of it.

    Nothing like having trains running. Fulfillment and satisfaction on overload/steroids. Don't pop to many buttons but do pat yourself on the back.

    Con-grads!

    Haven’t posted in a bit here, so here’s some progress shots and a video.

    Some shots of the BNSF mains going in at Devore.

    And the crossovers and yard entrance going in at SBD yard. Yard will have the BNSF Main 1/2/3 through tracks, three BNSF arrival/departure tracks, six classification tracks and a very condensed section of UP’s Colton (two mains and three arrival departure tracks).

    Nice progress. That concrete tie track looks good.

    Finally connected my trackwork on the lower level now so I can finally run trains continuously around the layout on Main 1 and 2. Still need to do Main 3, the UP line and the yard but those will be next.

    A few recent photos of the progress and a video shot not that long ago of some trains running on the layout.
