Scott’s been in touch again (his last post is here).
He’s been kind enough to send in a track plan, and a video of his layout in its early days.
I thought it worth posting, because it just goes to show it’s all about making a start:
“Alastair. Some of the comments asked to see track plans. Here are some early days on the layout without scenery.
“I have something to show everyone: my ballast Despenser. An 0-4-0 loco hauls the wagon and ballast falls out the bottom on to track.
How to build:
Drill along the under side of the wagon so you have a long narrow hole from side to side.
Then add ramps so ballast goes out the hole. Couple to your loco, fill with ballast then go!
A huge thanks to Iwan and Scott.
Still love seeing your pics and tips after all these years. Please, please do keep ’em coming. Just email them in to me.
That’s all for today folks.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if you want to get going, just like Scott did.
