Bigfoot Happening Stage 03 02

Details of the track now. As I counted today upon a revisit after work, Bigfoot’s marble race contains 42 1/2 pieces of O-27 gauge model railroad track, which takes it beyond Billfork’s 37. And I had a lot more 0-27 stuff to work with, actually. The thought crossed my mind to even enlarge upon the track here, perhaps extending it toward Mina Pool. But I probably won’t, even though I have tomorrow afternoon and then all day Thursday off now for more hiking fun and possibilities.

Each object holding up the track has its own small story to tell. Most came from the old high school football stadium once more. The 1st big curve of the track after the start is supported here by the rusty metal skeleton of an old chair, turned on its back.

As I’ve mentioned before, the race setup begins on top of Bigfoot’s very central spool table and ends on the bottom of same. In the below photo, you can also see some detail of the track beyond the first curve more in the background…

This higher brick structure is another new one in town, and helps to prop up a northern portion of the track. I found it at the Plateau of Raw Art’s upper baseball field.
