Staging Rebuild

I realized I hadn't updated the site with my work on the staging and mill areas. Here are a few pics of my updates over the last few weekends. At first, I had to rebuild the area to go from 15" wide to 24" wide on both the upper and lower areas and then put backdrops. First the upper level which is where the blast furnace and coke plant will be:

And then the lower level, which will be staging:

I then put the fronts up.

I used my Kreg Jig for all of this. The shelves are really, really solid, which is great for the upper level. I also worked on the other side of this wall. Next steps are to fill in some holes in the backdrop where 10' of backdrop was needed but I only got 8' long strips.

I will say this, getting small steps done each week is really good. I still have a goal of being ready for track laying come this fall.

Welcome to the my Conrail Model Railroad site. I will document the research, design, construction and operations of my N-scale model railroad based on Conrail's Ft. Wayne Line in Ohio.
