I got the inner rear staging track connected, secured the turnouts leading into those tracks, then I dropped and connected the feeders.
The engine facility/caboose track and the industrial lead is still laid out temporarily as I'm waiting on a few turnouts and metal rail joiners to arrive. Once everything shows up, it shouldn't much to wrap that area up. Then I can get the rest of the feeders connected.
With the area I have to work with now, I decided to go with two engine facility tracks and one caboose track. The caboose track will also be long enough that I can use it as a MOW track to store my track cleaning cars on it so that they are ready to go when needed.
The rest of the industrial trackage won't get laid out until I get some buildings assembled and placed. But that will likely be awhile as I have more pressing things to work on.
As of this post I can now run a train through the yard, Yay! But the rest of the layout still looks like a storage shelf.
