More cork roadbed going down in the yard. I'll use cork sheets in the engine terminal area to the left.

More progress to date after getting more cork roadbed. Found out that our only local hobby shop closed so either have to drive a couple hours round trip or place an order...sigh. This is the East Portland section with the produce warehouses and the waterfront.



Got the central dividing backdrop up that will support a coved backdrop on this side. Still need to cut the hole for the staging track connection shown by the switch and put up the sky extension (laying in the river) that will support the other end of the backdrop and the east span of the double deck Steel Bridge.



Meanwhile,  I'm recycling the wood from the old layout into an 3-rail O gauge layout built high enough so I can work underneath and allow  a leg of the N layout to fit below as well. This layout will just be a couple of layered disconnected loops with generally realistic scenery (vs postwar grassmat  style). The irony here is that some of this wood dates back to the early 80's and my first O layout attempt which got recycled forward into multiple N layouts and back to today...

Completed the upper deck with the new O 3-rail layout , which now allows me to move ahead on the revised module version. Got the backdrop attached to the end cap that sits underneath the other layout, so I can finalize what fits or not. Here you can see this going on for three modules at once.
