Subroadbed almost finished

I hosted a work session / dinner last night, with my friends Chris Abbott and Mark Zagrodney coming by after work to help build subroadbed.

It was most useful to have three pairs of hands put to the task since there were a few very long pieces of plywood to cut, install and level. These included the roadbed for the east end of St. Williams…

… and the west end of Port Rowan:

Port Rowan is going to be a long, skinny yard:

Earlier in the day, I added bracing for a potential third bridge on the layout – an overpass just west of St. Williams:

This didn’t exist in real life but there’s a lovely short bridge over Stone Church Road at Rymal, further north on the Hagersville Sub, and adding the bracing means I have the option to include this bridge if the mood strikes.
