The ROCK 3.0: Progress Report 01.12.14

I have been fighting off a cold and then a stomach bug which kept me out of the layout room lately.  Tonight, I went back in for a little bit.  I trimmed up the turnouts for the west yard ladder in Ottawa.  I had to remove the turnout out on the mainline.  I laid that earlier before starting to lay out the yard tracks.  I didn't like the angle that it was coming into the yard.  With the custom built turnouts, these are extremely straight.  I love looking down the line of turnouts to see a perfectly straight line.  The last turnout where it enters the mainline skewed my "straight line" view.  It wasn't hard to pry the turnout up.  I will secure it back down after I get all the yard cut and shaped.
