Realignment at Calion begins

With the deck bridge about done I starting messing with the mainline between North El Dorado and Calion this evening.

Forgive the clutter, but if you look closely you can see the centerline of the old tangent just above the turnout in the lower left.  You can see a short tangent just after the mainline curves, this is where the deck bridge will be installed.  The picture doesn't do this track justice because the radius is over 20" on both ends of the bridge.

The track to the bottom right is the Drill Track for El Dorado and is just temporarily tacked in place for now.  Once it straightens up, it too will have a bridge crossing the Ouachita River.

I still need to realign the tracks as they run into "MQ siding" and also rework the spurs that service Calion Lumber.
