    With the backdrop done, I started renovating the track in El Dorado.

    The main and siding are completely installed.
    I removed all the turnouts on the south end (under the last four cars) that lead to the siding and two A/D tracks and moved the single south siding switch around to the corner , just about where 10th car from the caboose is at.
    I flipped the house track to the south end of the depot. I did this to balance out the trailing point switching moves.
    That'll make three moves for the NB local and two moves for the SB local.
    The long track to the left of the train is the spur for Dr Pepper.
    The next short track I'm thinking will be an oil/fuel dealer. I may install it so it follows the angled track?
    The track that angles across is the spur for the Maytag warehouse.
    The track in the foreground, left of the siding, will be the lead to the abandoned branchline and through truss bridge. It will remain intact but weeded over and I may park some MOW equipment there? I just want to see some old stuff sitting around...
    The short spur will be the for the mill.

    That's how I have it now, but will see how things layout once I get the buildings out.

    I've already changed the plan from what I had drawn up a few days ago, but I expected that would happen...

    Here's where I'm at now. I virtually cleaned up the mess.
    All the spurs are just tacked into place so I can make adjustments as I move along.
    The mill track and the (soon to be) abandoned section are just roughly laid in place.

    The Maytag spur might be a little difficult to reach and will more than likely moved closer to the south end so it's easier to reach when uncoupling.

    Looking South.
