Wellington construction

With the track at Wellington loosely laid out for a couple of weeks now, we started to install it in place.  Starting with the yard ladder, a series of #4 left hand switches (thanks for prepping them John) were placed at an angle to the bench work so that the radius of the turnout lined up with each yard track.  Two #6 turnouts were connected to the yard feeder to make the three track mainline through town ( this is where the station will go). Other turnouts were set where sidings might be, depending on structures they will serve. The east end of the track work was attached to the upper mainline, thus making the last connection to the mainline. As this is the highest area of bench work, the track arrangement was kept simple for us short people.
