Another day working outside. Still a bit too cold to work comfortably for very long.
Finished all the clamps and guides.

Had to adjust a few after the fact. Especially the one near the joint I worked on. I did learn that you should buy all the same types of clamps from the same store or chain. If you mix the bits up they don't all work together.

I took the time to fix this joint. It didn't line up properly and used too many short track pieces. It looks much better now. We will see how it works at Western Rails.

Bill, is there wood under the foam that the clamps are screwed into?

There is a wood block on the bottom side for the screws to bite into.
The blocks are glued to the foam. I expect that they will eventually work loose and have to be replaced, but I hope to have a better solution by then.
