Finally had a couple of hours to myself so I’ve been working out the positioning of the track on the second board, there will be three points and a single slip on the raised embankment. I’ve also done a short video of my current fleet.
Starting big projects when you've got work the next day is the best time....! (or so I tell my other half.....)Thanks very much, that’s one if my aims to get flowing track and I was particularly happy with the 86 weathering albeit it’s only a very light dusting of dirt unlike most the others haha. Although I’ll probably regret it I started on the next set of points probably not the wisest of ideas when I’m up at 0330 for work
I was in bed by ten but still wide awake around midnight, getting up at 0330 wasn’t easy, good job I love going to workStarting big projects when you've got work the next day is the best time....! (or so I tell my other half.....)
Hi Cameron the incline on the original Edge Hill was 1:28 so quite steep this won’t be quite as harsh though as I want it to be as prototypical as I can get as I’ll have a breakdown train to drag up the incline 😉Looking good!
What is the gradient on the incline at the rear? It looks fairly gentle in the first photo, but the lens compression on the 2nd certainly 'steepens' it...!
Evening John, (yep it is Paul) I can’t recommend track building enough it’s very therapeutic once you get the hang of it. When I was modelling in 7mm I was building all the track but I’ve compromised on this layout as C&L’s flexi is really good.This is getting interesting Paul, (it is Paul?).
Your tracklaying looks really good and will lift your layout up in quality. It's tempting to follow down the track making route.
