Not long ago, Mike got in touch (you can see the original post here). Here’s Mike’s update:
“I have started to place the town. It isn’t there yet but a work in progress.
The blue stripes are the blue painters tape at I am using to suggest the road ways.
I haven’t painted anything yet and still in “layout” mode. I took to heart cleaning up the board and it has been nice.
I can actually see what I need to do and what I am doing. I hope that you find these pics nice.
The switch in the for ground ( gray ) is the double slip switch from Kato.
I had a lot of trouble in the engines and cars to go across that switch.
It turned out the switch was 1/16 inch bent up. What I did was hot glue the switch down and it is now working with out problems.
Let me know what you think.
Big thanks to Mike – because it’s all about rolling your sleeves up and having a go.
I’ve had one or two email on the ‘Sleeping Giants‘ post too.
I can help with the answers on this one, because there was also a follow up post, which is here.
That’s all this time folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is just a click away if you want to get cracking.
Keep ’em coming!
