Congratulations, crew!

For the time being, Brendan's 3rd shot makes a dandy "What's wrong with this picture?" picture!  :D

Bay 2 switch looks perfect. Great work, guys. Looks like 3 will be done super soon.
Re: dry, rusty slide plates...track guys in Abq paint  a silicone paste  on them, dries to a slippery consistency, whatever it's called.  
In my experience, using both a point field man using a signal lantern and  an outside relay guy should prevent pushing cars through the barn's back wall!
Or, you may need to use radios, only here.
Cheers.  ;)

We now keep a ready supply of LED "lanterns" at the doors to the car barn so that we have them handy when moving equipment in.

The Northyard car bar the switch for track number three and the woods track is now in service. It is safety spiked. 

Today Jim and myself with Bob and Jason's help salvaged the remaining parts to get the switch stand installed and adjusted.

Tuesday Steve, Mark and Phil can finish spiking the slide plates and we will be done.
