The main station track is laid

Here is what it looks like at the moment. Please note that this is a panorama shot taken with my phone. The back scene is straight - not curved as shown.

Before I can fix the main station board into place, I have to make and install the turntable that is going on the right (not in the depression, just on the end of the raised station board, if you see what I mean).

The turntable is a wooden, laser cut, one provided by Kitwood Hill Models.

It comes with a nice little gear train to power it. I have a decoder to control it and an auto reverse module to manage the flip in electrical polarity when the turntable turns around.
