Work Progress on the Return Loop Module

 Throughout the summer, I've been working on completing the return loop module. Due to space constraints, I've been constructing the module in the garage.

The radius of the loop is 16" and the turnouts are a mix of # 4's and 2.1's, which match the 16" radius.

Turnout control will be via Tortoise switch machines, controlled by Barrett Hill Touch Toggles.

Each turnout will have its own signal for routing. These are 3D printed from my own design.

I'm currently wrapping up the wiring and ballasting the track. Hopefully I can have this in the basement in the next month or so before the weather turns cold!
