I also put some 22ga leads at the very end of the bus, to feed the tracks that go on the "bridge". Once I cleaned the solder & flux off the rails, I fired up the system & gave it a test run, with a Proto 2000 U28B and about ten cars. Success! It ran all the way 'round on RF&P Track 2 twice! I will have to attempt some video at some point, but here's some progress photos in the mean time.
Soon, I hope to get the backdrop painted blue and the fascia up and painted green. I think a little color, other than pink is in order.
