Putting a Stop to It

Now that I can run the loco on Comstock Road, there now exists the possibility of rolling stock taking inadvertent flying lessons. This is much to be avoided so after one scare involving a combination of touch screen finger trouble and momentum effects I knew I need to take steps. It is a small job but it is now a small job done. I cut up some scrap pieces of 1/4″ plywood and made stoppers for the four ends of track. They are fastened to the subroadbed with wood screws which should stop the loco unless it really gets up a head of steam.

The end on shot is an artifact of having to detach the section to get at the ends which normally are about 6″ from the wall. I am pleased to have this taken care of until I get scenery and/or backdrop ends installed.
