Last night, the first train ran the length of the shortline - M&E 19, an Alco C424, led a flatcar and gondola 'work train' to the yard to 'assist in the clean up from construction.' Actually it was just an excuse to test things out a bit, and all went pretty well!
As with other parts of the layout, the industrial siding alignment is not going to be finalized until I have assembled all the rail-served structures, which will take some months. In the mean time, I am using mock-ups and temporarily located tracks so that operations can begin.
Photos and a full writeup coming soon!
