I did a similar little bracket affair for the other side of the staging tracks. This one is not recessed under the upper deck overhead as much as that previous side. For that reason the very last turnout in the ladder does not require a cable/rod control,...but rather is just within fingers reach.

easy access for any derails...

Per my mention previously both of these brackets are totally under that main deck overhead even while som photos make them look like they are projecting outwardly,...
