More of the Same, Part II

Spent a few minutes roughing out the track. Kato is insanely easy to work with. Runaround is long enough for two-car passenger operations, which is exactly what I was hoping for, as I will be mostly running mixed trains. They will be split upon arrival, with the 0-6-0 Bellwether handling the goods while the 2-8-0 (which will be christened soon) runs around, pushes the coach to the platform, and then turns around on the turntable before topping off with water and coal for the return trip.

Then I started on the recess for the turntable, using a hole-cutting attachment on a Dremel. I will have to “scrape” the recess out using another Dremel attachment. I started before realizing how much dust it makes. This will be an outside job.
