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.
