I recently read that Conrail's instructions were "test every inch of the railroad" with the track geometry car.

Well, here it is, showing off the basic coat of paint I put down here to kill the green.

I shot a pair of photos from actual eye height.

These have the kit on them?

Yup. Only thing I haven't done is install the horns.

Working out staging for the East York Industrial.

I made a template out of foamcore. I think the final version will be foam with a wood spine, mostly to make it easy to cut to the weird shape and to actually get into place.
