Empty Canvas

I started work on the Paper Mill in Hallelujah on the Silicon Valley Lines club layout in San Jose.

The first act involved removing all remaining track and structures to create an empty canvas.

Structures gone. On to removing the tracks and turnouts along the backdrop.

The track in the rear is the mine spur that will be mostly hidden behind (and inside) paper mill structures.

The club is currently in its annual Christmas shutdown to allow for invasive track work. There are several projects going on in Bayshore. I used the opportunity to cut the mainline in Hallelujah and fit the turnout into the paper mill complex. The turnout needs to be shimmed and a frog wire attached. Holes for frog wire and Tortoise need to be drilled, too.
