Trackplan Revision

The new hole in the wall between the layout room and the shop area. The revised trackplan will mean the removal of the track shown in the upper left running along the wall. Instead, the track leading off the end of the wye will curve through the new hole and into the Transfer Yard.

Here is the new hole from the other side of the wall. I am using a folding carpenter's ruler to approximate the radius of the curved approach to the Transfer Yard.

New hole in wall

An exploratory hole punched through the wall to determine the exact location of the 2 studs I guessed were in this general area. There appears to be enough space between the studs to twist the roadbed through.
