The foreground where those horizontal boards are held up by clamps, shows where the ridge line will go. The height of the ridge is generating some controversy as I am tall and most of the team are not (height challenged as we say). So, if I make it too tall, they cannot see the train on its whole way up the grade as there will be a hill side to the left of the ridge line. So, they are advocating that I lower the ridge and make more of the hill side visible. The problem is that I will then see more of the band board I built. I plan to paint it a dark green but may have to glue some vegetation to the front to hide some of it.

I am also replacing an unsatisfactory number 8 double slip that is a critical turnout for me.
