Taking a break from the upper yard

As I finish the framing up above, I have to get the turnout wiring done and the blocks cut below as it will not be convenient to do this later.

Thus, I have drilled the roadbed to accept the drops from the turnouts. I am using Atlas turnouts but do not trust their wiring to go the distance. So, I am adding feeders to each rail section and the frog.

I am also insulating my block cuts with yellow styrene.

These will then be coated with epoxy and ground to match the profile of the rail. Once this is done, I can finish the wood work above.
