Got the surfacing boards for the layout today and was so excited I just had to slap the turnouts and some flextrack down to see how it would look. Below is looking North towards Howard Street and Milwaukee end of the layout.
Below is looking South toward the Chicago Loop end of the layout.
Now three pan shots left-to-right going from South to North along the layout.
Midway and the heart of the yard's ladder tracks
And finally the North end of the yard.
Now I'm about to go away and finish modifying the baseboards to fit and the start surfacing them, so that I can start laying track down next weekend.
