Track Laying

The track laying has been going at a rapid rate on the Yass side of the layout & i have also finally attached the base boards for the storage yards & layed the track.Before i dismantled the original centre section which houses Yass & Jerrawa i took measurements so i could relay the track the same,thankfully it worked,it all went down the same.The end sections for the upper & lower decks have been constructed & fitted.I have worked out the manual point switching mechanisms for  all 40 + points on the upper deck of the layout,but i will save that for another post.
I contacted Auscision during the week(the wait is nearly over,(6 weeks they said) & ordered 2 422'S,Bicentenial 18 & reverse 12.The Bicentenial will replace the Lima one i repowered with a athern mech & fitted with a TC-1 decoder(might be up for sale),hopefully the other 2 422's i ordered through a shop will get supplied as well cause if i miss out on these 2 ill be very annoyed especially as 1 of these 2 is 42220 which is listed as sold out before they even arrive & when i was speeking to Auscision they said that a rerun of the 422's would not happen for at least 2- 3 years,and the rerun might include the later liveries they carry in private ownership.
