New CAD drawing of the Yakima NP yard

I’ve made a major change of the Yakima NP yard on my Anyrail CAD file. I moved the ladder tracks and yard lead to the south end of the layout. I did not like the way the yard lead at the north end of the layout looked or functioned.  The problem I am now seeking a solution for is that the Fasttracks switches in the CAD program appear to be smaller than the templates I downloaded from their site. In my CAD I can get six leads but on the layout, with the templates, I can only fit in five leads. I’m going to ask the CAD user group to look into the problem.

New reversing “Y”

Yesterday I completed the track wiring for my reversing “Y” on the backside of the layout into the staging area. This afternoon I will wire up the turnout motors and then move forward on the Yakima loop track. For the last several days I have been looking into converting to a NCE system and selling my Digitrax gear. The Willamette club where I operate runs all NCE.
