First crossover turnout

Just finished the first turnout of the crossover. Nothing much to add other than I started with the frog and prefabricated all the pieces before doing any soldering. Everything came together nicely. I’m still getting to grips with the correct clearances – they are looser than they need to be – but everything seems to work fine. My little truck navigates the turnout without any problems. I still have to do some cleaning up but overall things look much tidier than my first turnout effort.

I started with the frog after which the pieces fit together easily.
I extended the guardrails from the crossover to the turnout.
I’ll get to the other turnout tomorrow.
