Major progress for the subway!  The platform is in place and the track is down.  I actually clipped a power from a siding track and ran a couple of cars around.  Of course, I had to stop at the clips sticking up from the track, but wiring comes next!

I did give up a lot of storage with the new level, but that's the price of progress.

Needless to say, @Tom Tee played a major role here, we measured all the clearances and he cut the platform to shape in two pieces, just brought it in and plopped in in place!  Well, "plopping" it in place did take some doing, because all the lower supports had to be added after the platform was in and then clamped near the top of the legs.  The cross members are all nailed and glued with corner braces, somehow I don't think this is going to fall down!  Once the platform was in place, just added the one piece of track between the two pieces and it was ready.

I located the WAGO lever nuts for solderless connections. Did you use that brand, and if so how many? I will be using them on my under-construction 8 x 16 layout. I received a sample from them and also a mounting terminal, they are of superior quality.WAGO 2

I have been using Wago Lever Connectors for the complete re-wiring of my layout that is currently in progress. I REALLY like them. I buy them in boxes of 50. They get used up quickly.
