While working out the kinks in operations for the layout, I realized there was a spot where I could really benefit from having a siding that would let me run around 4 cars. There was room for me to cut one in nearby so, I went ahead and did it today. The pictures make the joints look funny, I don't know why, but they are smooth in person. This will save me from having to shove 6 cars all the way up the branch.
Here it is from the other end. I am so disappointed in my backdrop. Someday, I will tear it off and put up something better.
I also planted a few rows of potatoes today.
