Today was track work intensive. I continued the passing siding through the wall and onto the platform that supports the helix.
|Here's the new entrance to/from the helix. Decided to put a passing siding in to help alleviate traffic going into Battlefield Yard.|

After adding the track in the garage for the passing siding, I decided it was not long enough and wanted to make it longer. So I added more flex track and curved it make it more than enough. Work would have continued but I ran out of small screws that hold the track in place.

|The long passing siding and through track will now curve around to give me plenty trackage.|
