OK, I didn't have pictures of Schuyler Junction the other night, but managed to remember to take a
few Thursday night. There are three crossovers involved, though one is tangent to the curves and
leads to the mainline heading to KC. The curved double track leads to Chicago. Going away from the
camera, is the main line heading east from here.

In one of these shots, you can see the two curved turnouts. You can also see the limitations of a
Club layout. If this was my personal layout, there'd be either electric switch motors, or rodding
if I decided to model an Armstrong setup. But in a Club setting, it's hard to get people to invest
the time to do all those fine details. And yes, that's a Revell tower, still in the original
colors. One member's been threatening/promising to repaint that for a couple decades now . . .

Erie and EL trains run on these tracks . . . (for list content)

La vita e breve, mangiate prima il dolce!
