Untergroeningen: More Track

Over the course of the week there was slow but steady progress on the Untergroeningen segments to add more track. Using Peco track converted to Maerklin 3-rail I go through all the motions of installing 2-rail track, plus beforehand install the pukos and go through extra wiring chores to power them. I always want to go faster no matter what kind of track I lay, but this is really testing my patience.

I also converted the 3 missing turnouts to 3-rail. It's vastly preferable to convert several turnouts at once. If they are connected in the track plan, it's easiest to solder them together and install pukos and wiring as a unit.

Tonight I finished making tracks 1 and 2 and the track to the end of the module. Wiring and Tortoises are next ...
