Quick Update: Another turnout

Trains

I’ve been trying something new the last couple of days, instead of winding down after putting the kids to bed I’ve been trying to do something train related. It can be something as simple as reading a train magazine or something a little more complex like tonight’s project.

Speaking of tonight’s project I discovered a friend of mine had purchased a Fast Tracks #6 turnout jig and was wiling to loan it to me for a little while (Thanks again Troy!). So I’ve been doing small projects to get ready for turnout building. Tonight I assembled my first turnout using a jig (and second turnout built overall). This one turned out quite a bit better.

I still need to do some finishing up like trimming to length and cutting gaps. I really need to work on my soldering, some of those joints really don’t look too great but it’s a good start
