Paul’s been in touch again. My word he’s been busy (his first post is here).
“Hi Alastair more photos of my progress to date.
Photo 1 is of the three bridges I mentioned in my first email
Photo 2 shows the Dremel Multitool I used to carve out the stream into the foam
Photo 3 is an overall shot of the layout to date
Photo 4 is a closeup of the tracks at the liftout showing the track soldered to the PC ties and gapped
Photo 5 shows the 1mm cork used to provide super elevation on the curves
Photo 6 shows what the PC ties look like with the gap cut in them to isolate the tracks from shorting out
Photo 7 shows the corner hill being landscaped and in place in corner of layout also work platform over tracks
Photo 8 shows the layout drawing which I highlighted with a marker
Photo 9 shows the wiring under the liftout –each track has it own connection to the copper contact pads.
A huge thanks to Paul – his third pic really does show how big his project is. I can’t wait to see it unfold too.
And if you’d like to make a start just like Paul, don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here.
Thanks to everyone. Please do keep ’em coming.
