Constructing the wye @ Fields

The SP developed a location on the South canyon wall named Fields. A wye was constructed here & was used to turn around all sorts of equipment from flangers & spreaders to Cab Forwards. On my model, there will be only 14 in. between Fields and the bottom of the air ducts! Taking into consideration my svelt physique, Fields has to be constructed "off site" as shown here being constructed while placed on other benchwork. Trackage at Fields is, of course, secondary, so I used C40 track and hand-made the switches. This photo is from the "back" side, which will be very close to the wall when it is placed in the layout. The tail track, which is closest to the camera, will barely be visible.
