I finished the structure for the removable sections of the upper and lower decks per fire codes to be able to access the breaker panel. The sections will normally be removed and set in place only to run the train. The track will be at the elevation as shown by the temporary bridge that will be attached to the removable section and come out with those sections. I decided to take over more of the room so my layout will get much larger than originally planned. This should answer the concerns that the one gentleman had about the electrical panel. I’m going to start the lower deck track layout and the actual bridge over the removable sections tomorrow.
This is the spray adhesive I used to attach the murals to the masonite hardboard. It’s called repositionable because you can reposition the murals as many times as necessary to get the joints lined up correctly. I applied the adhesive to the masonite. The murals I purchased on-line from a company in the UK for which I will provide the website below. They are very reasonably priced and quite good resolution. The upper deck mural is quite obviously taken in the UK but it was the only one that had 4 consecutive images available and my upper mural needed to be 40 ft long. I dealt with a gentleman named Mike @ Howard Scenic Supplies. I thought this information might be helpful to fellow Model railroaders.
Two great posts from Barry. Can’t wait to see his progress!
