Here is something similar  https://www.ebay.com/itm/352373611149



Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I've been looking for something like that for weeks now.

There's a prototype for everything.
If you can't make it perfect, make it adjustable.

I’m hoping they look even better after I paint them!

Trackwork is done on the White Pine! Another batch of electrical switches and covers just arrived, I’ll get them all wired this week. The next set of tortoises are also enroute.

Probably a dumb question, but can someone explain the letters on the switches... N & R.

"N" is the normal route.

"R" is the reverse--also called the diverging--route.

Exactly right. Part of clearing the track warrant is letting the DS know all switches are lined and locked in the normal position.

I started working on the scale house. Lots of styrene chopping.

I also started adding some switch stands on the end of the yard I have ballasted.
