Sub-roadbed of HDPE along side the same covered with the foam roadbed material.
Russ Mosser adds new roadbed foam as Paul Boston assists.
Access without the glass is great, but that ended all to soon.
Long straits along the ramp. Jiggles in the sub roadbed can be fixed easily.
Meandering roadbed makes interesting scenes.
Two outer loops of sub-roadbed are completed.
Track installed and train tested before the installation of the Lift Bridge.
The shear wall on the right will provide an interesting backdrop for scenery.
The station area will be on the risers that now support the track box.
All we need now is a lift bridge. The Kids Thomas area is in the open area where the tracks turn.
The long view with O gauge closest, then N gauge, and at the other end the HO gauge layouts.
The Lift Bridge arrives. Bill Rodgers, Gerry Pfeiffer, and Wesley Schriver contemplate the installation process.
The counterweights are supported by HDPE blocks while cable are attached to the bridge.
Dave Brown “supervises” the installation
It’s up and over the pulleys for the lift cables. Tall guys rule here. (Bill is on a ladder ... cheater!)
Four loose cables need four hands.
Bill tests a lift.
Russ checks plumb.
Finished install. Now for final tweeks.
Watch this area as we grow!
A reversing siding is added to the lower level.
Stubs of the sub-roadbed await the under-arch bridge that is coming.
Lots of sub-roadbed in the multi switch area.
Installers had this glass in hand when it shattered with a BANG! No injuries, thank goodness.
The magnificent under-arch bridge, another product of EagleWings Iron Craft here in Phoenix!

Guest view of both Eagle Wings Iron Craft bridges. WOW!
