Murrah Staging Yard

Built By:Josh Murrah

Description:

This is a staging yard set of modules built out of triples… the layout can be either two modules (the end pieces) or can be three or four modules long for 12 foot maximum length. The modules are scratch built out of 5mm underlayment and chopped down 2x4 lumber for feet at the corners.

Each main has three staging tracks and I use #6 switches for reliability and ability to allow all lines to be "run-through" rather than dedicating a main line. All stage tracks are insulated at the end of the switches and powered/blocked with ability to turn off lines in the case of DC trains. The "left" module is powered. Raising ground level for most of the yard to rail height and scenery is all underway, will be complete before June.
