This is the first baseboard for Ripley station. Measures 5" x 2" with folding legs and as you can see has nice pink wood, (recycled from girls unwanted bedroom shelfs) which has quickly been painted over black. The uprights will support the backscene and front scenery former, they will be trimmed down when i build the landscape. The control panels are made from hardboard with track diagram painted on, they are hinged for easy access when wiring switches in etc. The hardboard either side of the chipboard centre is temporary whilst i plan where everythings going. The second baseboard will be the same size with 2 legs, and shall be connected with split hinges.

The Booking office was on Nottingham Road, i dont have any pictures of the rear of the building, so a bit of guess work, until a picture turns up. Anyone have any info they would like to share?
