12AA Progress 033013 18

12 AA View of Speer Wye from mezzanine. Note stoop under steps and lower level Ogden industrial area access hole in upper level deck. Spline roadbed starts at curve just beyond Cheyenne Tower A turnouts (5 crossovers connecting 4 tracks). Speer is the wye, and Denver route is down past turnout near the tape measure.

12A Chey Pass House Brick Wall and Windows

12A Passenger House walls of Cheyenne roundhouse. Lenny drew them on AutoCad then colored them and printed them to match photos of the Cheyenne prototype. There will be a separate section for the Freight House with more stalls, just like the prototype.

Just simply spectacular. Love the sheer size, and the level of detail you are trying to achieve. Great stuff.

12B Progress 043013 01

12B Early shot of Lenny Wyatt's Passenger House (Passenger part of full roundhouse) showing scratch built wood framework and roofs. West bound tracks are the five to the left beside the Passenger House, and the Omaha track is the single east bound track between the Passenger house and the soon be be built Freight house. In other words, the Freight House will be all the tracks not into the Passenger House except for the left hand 5 and the right hand one.

13B 030813 Layout Progress 07

13B Cheyenne Turntable and Passenger house (left) and Freight House (right) locations. Large Back Shop building is 5 Walther kits built together as one for the back shop. This view is a better look at the Omaha track east past the Passenger House and past the Back Shop, and at the 5 tracks onto the turntable, 4 out of the coal chute and one that bypasses it.

17 More panels. All turnouts on wide Cheyenne bench (and others hard to reach) are Tortoise machine controlled, and Lenny drew and made the panels which tilt out to reveal the wiring. The rocker switches are accessible through 1" finger holds to avoid being bumped, an idea I stole from Rick Fortrin in Santa Clara. Green LEDs light up for the route selected (straight or diverging), and some pairs of turnouts are synchronized to operate from one switch if they always have to be aligned together.

18 More panels and some LEDs can be seen illuminted for the panels powered up. The corked area on the lower level is to be "North Platte," that is the arrival/departure yard in staging to feed trains up the small helix onto the upper level into east Cheyenne as if coming from Nebraska (think Chicago; Marysville, Kansas; Kansas City, St. Louis, New Orleans....). Behind this 8 track staging (1/5 of the main staging) will be the Ogden Ice Dock (6 feet long), Ogden stock yards, and a packing plant.

20A 060212 Progress 10 copy

20A Staging helix at end of Cheyenne east (upper level) and staging (lower level). Note upper level passenger train turning loop on top of helix. There is a lower leve loop to turn east bound trains through Cheyenne, so they poiint back west for their return trip from...ahh, Chicago?? There is an west bound loop not visible on the lower level to turn passenger tains heading for the Coast so they can return pointed correctly.

21 Some spline roadbed being glued up while laying flat on the plywood bench. After the glue sets it will be raised up on riser blocks to the model elevation to match the prototype elevation at that location.
