“Just a little surprise on the layout.
The other day I heard a grinding noise coming from the train room so I went in to see what was going on. Well I found a blue box all lit up. The strange part is I never put it there. I am still trying to figure it out. Picture in closed.
In the meantime I have some crews running water lines to the community.
Will be sending more soon
Steve from Toms River.”
Strange blue light? I had to look at Steve’s pics twice before I twigged. Did make me smile though.
And now the latest from Rob and his fantastic layout update:
In my latest video we look at methods for power feeders to the track, the magic wheelie stool, cutting the last spice in what will be the fast line because the tightest curve is 24 inches plus radius, a little soldering, cutting track pads, and running my Intercity 125 at high scale speeds. Not as fast as she will go, but fast enough for a real jolt of fun.
We go under the table and connect wires the easy way and discuss cutting track for a diamond crossover. Tricker than you might think. The layout is coming along nicely and bnow only one loop left to build and I can start the scenery planning and land forming.
I think some of your viewers that are new to the hobby will get some ideas or hope they will.
A huge thanks to Steve and Rob (Rob’s last post is here).
That’s all this time folks – please do keep ’em coming.
