The 6" x 48" Staging yard in the lowered storage position.
The staging yard lifted into position with a temporary leg for now.
This will add about 6ft of track length when taking into account the mainline realignment behind Peru Power.
So, I'll block the pathway to our bedroom during the op session, but not to the stairs which the family and operators need to access during sessions.
A simple 4" hinge mounted to the end of the layout.
Folds up nice and neat. I'm happy!
