I thought that I would keep you up to date on the construction of my new double deck layout.
Remember the engine house (HOn3 scale) from my previous layout and the article that you published, it was stripped off its original placement (top photo) and will be relocated to the upper deck just above where it is shown in the last photo. (It took a lot of courage to remove it without any damage being done in the process and about three hours of painstaking work) Pardon all the visible wiring at the moment as it will all be hidden “underground” once in place.
And lastly Dangerous Dave has been in touch again with his latest installment too:
got the Pannier tank Loco back, now with sound and lights, very impressive sound, not often you get good sounds from /Steam Loco`s this size ….
I also show that dave also does things wrong, got the loco on the track with one axle wheels off the track… but a good demo of sound that can be added to these small Loco`s.
Still got to figure out altering the CV for the chuffs , am told should be 4 chuffs per wheel revolution.
All part of the Hobby.
A big thanks to Dave and Brian – both of them Hall of Fame members. I’m very interested to see how someone as talented as Brian puts his layouts together from day 1. Looking forward to the next update.
That’s all this time folks. Please do keep ’em coming. And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to roll your sleeves up and get going.
PS Latest ebay cheat sheet is here (it’s probably the thing I get most comments on, so thank you).
