    [QUOTE=D&J RailRoad;443132]OK, I forgot to hit the publish button on YouTube. Try it now.[/QUOTE

    OK that worked.

    Too bad you don't have enough room to run long trains.

    My space is only 21 by 13 but I didn't want to have to duck under the table to reach some access hatch so I have a simple U shaped, folded dogbone track plan.

    I wanted a workable classification yard and I got that, albeit a small one.

    I wanted a decent passenger yard with station and I got that with sidings long enough for 10-12 cars.

    I wanted a engine yard with full turntable and I got that.

    To get all that something had to give and it was the mainline - just the simple folded dogbone.

    I always wanted to have the space you have but it has never worked out that way - the wife always has other ideas when she sees a wide open basement - wives must love walls or something.

    Got some more work done on the other end of the yard. Cutting the track to fit is the easy part. setting up the slide switches takes longer. While I'm using them to control the turnouts, I'm also applying wires to the terminals that face down under the layout to provide powered frogs and later on to power dwarf lights.
    The two most forward tracks are the A/D tracks. The third track that is partially completed is the fiddle track.

    Got some more work done on the yard throat this evening. Had to stop so I could watch NCIS.
    The container train is leaving on the departure track, being shuttled over to the intermodal yard while the freight cars are being shoved back in the classification yard from the fiddle track.

    More turnouts installed and linked up today.
    A Freight peddler is inbound on the arrival track and is routed over to right hand running while the yard switcher, SD45 is still assembling trains.

    Finished the turnouts at the end of the yard.
    Ran some trains through the turnouts to be sure they were aligned right and the slide switches worked right.
    Now just have to apply track power to the frogs through the slide switches.

    Finally got around to spreading some ballast in the classification yard. I have one more container of the N scale ballast then I'll have to wait till the next train show to pick up some more. The yard track is code 100, but the ballast covers the ties and right up almost to the top of the rails. I have spread some other grade ballast in a few spots as you would find around repaired spots.
