Johnstown Track Work Complete

Staging yard entrance.

The opposite end of the yard. There are two run-through and two stub-end tracks. At right is the begining of a short branch line to Summerhill. 

A pair of industrial siding split off the Summerhill Branch.

I got the rest of the track work in Johnstown finished up today. The day's work consisted of getting the four yard tracks and two industrial sidings laid down and installing some Cornerstone bumpers on the dead-end tracks. Admittedly, you don;t see too many track bumpers like these out in the real world as most dead-end tracks simply end. However, after having engine take a nose dive off the layout, I decided all the dead-end tracks needed some kind of capper to keep that from happening again.
