Put on a happy fascia

My friend Chris Abbott visited this week and we put up the first pieces of fascia.

Before our session, I picked up some Masonite at a local DIY store, and had the store cut the 4′ x 8′ panels into four 8′ long strips. Chris and I installed two of them – so, 16 feet – which was enough to clad the layout through the Lynn Valley:

This work included adding some additional supports, contouring the top edge of the panels to follow the scenery, and dismounting – then remounting – two of the switch stands in St. Williams. Good progress and already it makes the layout look much more finished.

The next eight-foot section of fascia to mount includes four switch stands so it’ll take two sets of hands and some time.
