Burnham Yard Track Laying 5

Spent today building the most complicated piece of track for the layout, involving three crossovers. This took about two hours from start to finish.

 And here is how I wired them.

I then spent an inordinate amount of time fettling previously laid track in the yard to get smooth running across the joints. It seems to me that Micro Engineering track is not as consistent in its sizing as I would like, with a noticeable tapering of height  towards the middle of each yard, which means that short sections cut from yards don't match up with other bits.

So only one more new turnout laid down as we had a friend coming around for dinner, and there were Brussel sprouts to prepare.
