At the gates

Spent quite some time today working out the layout of the double level crossing at the north end of the station. It's quite a beast as the image above shows and is basically a road and footpath split crossing at right angles to the main car park. There is also a side gate giving access to the track bed, where the works loco Dolgarrog was stored during phase 3 construction. Having drawn out this crossing, I was able to sort the final curves on board 2 and cut and lay most of the cork there. Tomorrow I hope to be able to finish this off and start pinning down the track. A section of cork for the station was also laid - I decided to lay one large piece (70cm long) and then cut out the unwanted pieces, rather than cut individual pieces to fit.
