Three days ago I ran out of right hand turnouts. Luckily I had them on order and even better, today they came in the mail. This allowed me to finish the east end of the Rosenheim station:

I've added the turnout and a few feet of track where the branch line will connect to the Rosenheim station. The waiting train is a battery operated ETA 177:

Now that the Rosenheim station is complete I will move on to the next peninsula which creates a small problem: it's a mess! I have been using it as a storage/sorting/work table and now I have to find different places to put all this stuff.

It took exactly 2 hours to get everything cleaned and organized. Now I'm ready for a few sheets of plywood again!

As your trackwork grows, your "free" tabletop tool storage will disappear.  I recommend some high quality audio-visual carts:

You can leave your stuff on them and move them around easily.  If you're lucky, they'll fit under your layout.
