Building a Grand Junction Intersection is a lot easier these days than it was when I was a kid.
Here are some old construction photos from that hot summer way back in 1984 when I built that intersection:
Running rail is Code 83 and the simulated channel rail is Code 70. They were spaced with a straight pin and spiked together with track spikes.
NMRA track gauge, the trackwork holds up to this day (some 30 freakin' years later!).
Building such intricate track work has become a lot easier now with premade castings from such suppliers as Custom Traxx and Proto87.
Andy Reichert was able to piece this special track work rather together quickly using his "Electric Avenue Easy Track System".
Here I spent all those years building something I thought would be very unique, and now any ol' Dandy off the street can build it. Yes sir! Any ol' Dandy can build it!
