The latest piece of the Terminal rendered in 3D. Construction of this section has started, and will likely be complete in a couple days.
Unlike the other sections I rendered in 3D, this piece shows where the gaps in the rail are to be cut. Many readers have wondered how, or if, it is possible to gap trackwork like this for proper power routing and I thought I would start by showing the location of the gaps. I have a technique that works well for cutting the gaps which I will show later on in the project. I have written about this technique before, if you want to check it out have a look here.
