Fitting Peco points

This should be quite quick... A push this week to get all the basic track and wiring down for the Nixnie copy (working title Glan-rhyd). My usual fare of small DPDT slide switches wired to the rails and actuating a piece of wire from the tie-bar - it's close enough not to bother with any tube and is surprisingly firm.
Wrapping the track to the left around a 7.5" curve is slightly trickier. The rail was pre-bent and re-threaded to take some of the spring out of it and has been pinned about 3" intervals; belt and braces.
