Alice Springs now operational, plus road and hard stand bases added

Hi All

Here is some pictures of Alice Springs in operational condition.
Doug came around and helped out with the laying down of the roads and the hard stand areas.

CLF4 and CLF1 about to depart Alice Springs.

The home stick is in place, and the base for Larapinta Drive is 

The Turntable area almost complete, the hard stand area is also down.

The end loading roads.

To add a bit more animation, I have added a Fuller vehicle system, but testing is first.

The Fuller vehicle road system temporarily in place, for testing.

The NTFS depot.

Access road at the west end of the yard.

The loop for the Fuller Vehicle system at the end of the Gantry road.

EL53 and GM30 rest at the loco sidings

The truck as is, that you get with the starter kit.

The temporary staging sidings.

Its been good to operate the yard as intended, and all that research as paid off, Train lengths are a respectable 19ft clear, the yard works as intended, no surprises.  With the base of the roads and hard stand areas down, its all starting to take shape.

Next is to weather all the sleepers and track, so that I can start on the base scenery.
Thanks to Doug for help with the the roads.
