I could spend another 1.5 hours in the workshop today and started work for the connecting tracks. I collected some rail from the scrap box and cut them to length. The shortest ones will be used for the roundhouse tracks, the others are for the station tracks. These have two different length to fit into the track geometry.
I also cut helper ties from flat steel bar and drilled the holes for the wooden ties. At least a made a welding jig, in which I’ll weld the 6 short pieces of track together during the next days.
