Along with being burnt out on installing Tortoise switch machines, I'm now sick of gluing down track. 10 of the 11 staging yard tracks are in, with each track being just over 13' long. I've been sick of working on the layout for the last week, so today I mustered enough energy to finish the rest of track 8, and both tracks 9 and 10. 11 will go in when I get around to building the reverse loops, since I'll need to know where to put the turnout. Everything still needs to be wired up. I'm going to *try* to get some of that done this weekend. So here is a few boring pics of alot of staging tracks.



Number one track is installed. Typical 3 loco, 30 car train sitting on it.
And laundry in the background.



Gettin' there. Tracks 1 through 7.



10 of 11. The last one will go in when I get around to building the reverse loops.



Looking back.


Both levels and a bunch of junk



A couple of locos.



The lineup so far.



All the trains I've been running on the layout for the last few months. Need to get some more set up now!
