That's the way to go, in my opinion, Greg.

Bob Hegge...yep, he was in RMC many times. What I really liked about his layout was that it was O scale/gauge with code 100 rail! Whatta great look and the equipment wasn't too shabby either. Blast from de past.

Woodie

Thanks, everyone for the responses.

Points...

It was Bob Hegge's work that inspired me to try laying standard gauge O in code 100.

Greg: There is no "right way". I have fabricated turnouts on the bench, on the layout, and somewhere in between by using soft wood roadbed at the turnouts instead of cork. I had a turnout in a tricky location that had to be fabricated to fit.

Good to see you back in the hobby.

I am new to this forum, but I bet just about everyone here wants to see photos of your progress.
