Alice Springs construction progress

Hi All
Alice Springs has come alive with a south side of the yard laid.  Here is some progress shots.
Doug came by for a construction inspection, I will let you know when we can start operating!

The CLP and 603 sit in the space of the locomotive depot, to the right is the end loading trackage, in the background is the main yard tacks, in the distance to the location of the goods shed.

The north end of the yard, trackage to the left is the going to the industrial  branch., the curved Peco Point the  northern end of the yard.

The yard looking east, at the west end of the yard is a set of double  crossovers, trackage to the left is the intermodal tracks, a new addition is a dummy track to the south side industrial sidings, in ultra modern Alice Springs, this road is used to store Sadabin's tankers, so I thought it would be a good idea to incorporate this section of trackage.

In the real Alice Springs the distance between the goods shed and the intermodal sidings are a lot wider, however this is the maximum width that I could build for operators to have access to both sides of the yard, the Fuller road system will be going in where the black Kenworth is standing.

The east end of the yard looking east.  The turntable is a Walthers build up, will fit within the 60mm thick  board.

The yard looking west, the track in the middle of frame is the carriage cleaning siding, I have also added a point to access the turntable, again as per prototype.

The southern end of the yard looking north. 

Intermodal sidings are to the right, main line and arrival and departure sidings are at the left.

The turntable control will be hidden behind a fence, now is a dirt bike store.
