Fascia & turnouts with toggles

I have completed control of each of two turnouts at two locations, outside and inside the layout arms. Throwing either toggle switch throws both turnouts.

Fascia construction

Work continues on constructing the fascia boards. Next will be installing the turnout control switches. The color is as close to Great Northern blue as I can get in a spray can.

Gauntlet bridge-gate installed.

I now have a completed route over the gauntlet bridge-gate. Trains can run all the way from Chehalis to Yakima. Time to start on some structural upgrades to the layout.

Power on the bridge

Bridge to the future

This was a major step forward to completing the bridge-gate from Yakima to Chehalis
