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.
And that’s exactly what Jim did in my last post – and since then my inbox has been full of emails asking how he gets the trucks to move.
The truth is, I don’t know – but I’m hoping Jim will put us out of our misery and let us in on the secret.
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!
