"Before" image of the staging yard after I'd removed the original fascia and skirt. This is what road crews saw when beginning and ending their runs at Linn St. in Atlantic, just out of view to the right, and it's this view of staging that I wanted to hide.

View from Atlantic after the divider and tall fascia were completed. I plan to eventually add the Hwy. 6/71 overpass to hide the opening on the right.

Except for this small segment of taller fascia, the rest of the fascia around the staging yard, shown to the left, is still short enough to easily reach over for access, track cleaning, etc.

East end of the staging yard. The section of fascia that extends to the valance is intended to block the view of staging from operators' primary vantage point in the room to the right.

West end of the staging yard, with layout entry gate at the left. New fascia extends 7" above layout height, allowing easy access to staging.
