This is the first expansion of the layout in years.   I wanted to expand the main line and bring it into the middle of the room, add some really long staging tracks to hold long trains and add another yard, a turntable and roundhouse.

Progress today. I ran power to the yard lead and inserted switches to connect the yard lead to the main.  I also inserted a switch to lead to the turntable.  I reinstalled the turntable. It was a major undertaking to get it level with the tracks.  It’s not perfect all the way around but those fine adjustments are for another day. I included a video of some progress and the first engine on the turntable.

No such thing as over kill-do it RIGHT.

Until now, I didn't realize the Atlas roundhouse had flooring. I bought mines used and that was not included.


That’s funny.   I wish I had built mine without it as it raises the track, which has required raising it on the approach tracks too
