Making The Grade(s)

I have spent a few hours in the shop over the last couple days and the subroadbed for Comstock Road, while not done, is done-ish. All the grades have been finalized so I know what things will look like and can get on to worrying pondering about the next thing which is the traverser framing. Left on the subroadbed to-do list are about a half dozen supports including the steep grade where it crosses the baseboard joint. Expect some over-engineering.

I settled on a difference of +6 scale feet (1.5″) in elevation for the back spur and -2′(0.5″) for the front one. This gives me the visual interest front to back without overdoing it. That last half an inch just seemed too extreme. Here is my first attempt at a gallery showing the results from various perspectives.
