I finally got my "benchwork" (used Ping-Pong table) cleared off and am now laying track. I am trying to get pictures and maybe a video or two posted when the track is laid. Scenery is yet to come, and will probably stay like that, at least until summer...


The picture is of the old track arrangement

You say old, so this comment may be irrelevant, but I'd suggest reversing one set of turnouts.  That way you can interchange from either direction.  Cheesy

You are right - they are all right hand turnouts.  But they don't do anything additionally.
