Wharf Tracks and Wye



Double Slip Switch on the wharf
Two legs of the wye complete.


I have installed the tracks on the wharf and have two legs of the wye installed. The two turnouts on the wharf are controlled by a single double slip switch.  The double slip allowed me to maximize the length of the sidings on the wharf. Each track can hold about 10 cars, or 8 cars and an engine. Since I only have 14 cars in total now,  I can fit the whole roster on these tracks.


All seems to be working well using a battery powered locomotive to test, as I have not added wires yet.

The transfer bridge to the car float will be added at the far end of the wharf, but I don't plan to move the car float during operations.

The last leg of the wye also includes three turnouts, so that track will take a while to install.
