With that benchwork there it will be tough to get the beer out.  Just saying!

It's a rolling cooler and I've already tested getting it to spin out of there with the well-stocked fridge next to it,  :D

I finally have something to add to weekend update.
Our Ntrak club, Mount Rainier N-Scale, is replacing the 20 yr old Ballard Why modules and I have started the benchwork on Ballard Why v2.0.
Been busy with yard work, but it rained today, so I spent the day in the garage making sawdust.
The Ballard Why consists of 2 6' Ntrak modules that route trains into Hazelton Yard, our setup and fiddle yard.

Got the legs, glue blocks and braces done on the East Why

This is a big project so I'd like to start a thread in layout engineering if anyone would like to follow the progress.
This is the East Why module with the preliminary track alignment done.
Left is the Orange Passing siding and the green line is to the right.
Tracks will enter Hazelton Yard through Double Slips. The Green Line will enter the yard on a "ramp".
This shows the yard throat module and the proposed track alignment for the right side or East Why.

Next thing to do is get the West Why to this same stage.
