South End Staging Yard

I have finally gotten started on my south end staging. This will make it possible for trains to actually continue through Norwich like the prototype.  I have to build a lift out section that will care the a 90 degree curve to be able to connect the staging yard with the rest of the layout.  I built the bench work for the yard this past Sunday as it was in the mid 90's out side, so the basement was a cooler alternative.  I basically built a shelf out of three quarter inch plywood on brackets.  I topped it with Homasote.  It is 8 feet by 1 foot long.

Here is the shelf, I will add a basic back drop and and ballast the yard to at
least make it look nicer.

Here is where the lift out section will go.
