That's good Doug - I did wonder ......................... :hmm

I used to be the man with the screws but alas, my stocks of useful sizes are just about exhausted - maybe that's why they're "useful sizes" ................

I think I'll need a trip to Screwfix when I start on Maxmill 11 ................

Hope all's well with you both (and Bisto of course).  Presumably the season on your 1:1 scale stuff is now over .............

I have a 'Carols down the Line' duty in the crossing box at Staverton on the evening of 6th December but I recently had a very pleasant and worthwhile Rembrance Sunday when I shared the day shift working in Buckfastleigh signal box controlling the 'Driver for Armistice' experience. For £20 you could drive a Prarie half a mile up the line and back [under supervision!]. Very intensive, an out and back every ten minutes! I certainly knew I'd been pulling levers when I got home. Between us we helped the railway raise £630 for the Poppy Appeal, as the SDR donated coal and water etc. I've managed to escape the dreaded 'Santa Specials' although Shelagh will be helping out for a day at B'leigh...

Bisto is fine, now a senior 11yr old.

  Hullo, Uncle Peter!

Doug

Hi Doug

Great to see the layout progress........glad to see you are being ultra cautious about accessing hidden sidings......one of the many lessons I have learned the hard way.

Glad Bisto is in fine fettle.......I had no idea he was such a young puppy when I first heard of him. I am afraid his Canadian equivalent "Euro" had to be put to sleep a few years ago......we still miss him despite having two replacements .....both rescues......a very elderly Wheeton and a very young pure bred mutt from Taiwan

Best wishes

John

Hullo, John,
Thanks for your post, I do know what you mean about certain dogs, three dogs on I still miss my Bully, Amy [short for Amazon All-Spice]. Here she is suckling an abandoned kitten....He grew to an enormous size on her milk, with canine teeth that overhung his lower lip, just like an panther writ small.



Anyway, back to railways, two photos' to show how I intend to support things. This larger flat area will be a terminus station and yard. Levelling up will be secured with self drilling/tapping screws through the brackets. Housing cut with a wobble saw.





Off to Staverton this morning, a beams and floor to fit in the ladies loo, I get all the glamour jobs, don't I?

Doug

As promised, like a glacier, slow progress as the 12"/ft railway has been taking up a lot of my time.

Just a shot of the corner arrangement, a curved base for the curved end to the backscene, although a 'gert lump of erf will rise there. I'm resigned to not having a roundy-go-round, the door being tight in the corner makes it all too difficult, so it will be end to end. I'm quite pleased with the rigidity of the brackets, the largest opening will be 23" x 17".

Glad to have done it this way as I hope to convince the management that the carpet needs to come up because of a seriously squeaky floorboard right in the doorway so I might as well replace it with some lanimit liminate wooden stuff.

Doug

Nice work, Doug.  Slow, but quality building.  :thumbs

As part of my work, I lift carpet and repair squeaky boards.  It's usually just nail sickness, and some long screws driven in nearby often fix the problem.

Cheers

Slow progress is progress still. And your benchwork is shaping up well.

 The glacier moves...



Herewith the first part of lanimati  lmninatin lamill er, sticking together some 5mm strips of clear softwood to make a curved corner for the baseboard assembly. The small, very handy clamps are pub Optic measure bracket clamps, courtesy of an obliging landlord some years ago.

Poop-poop

Doug

Now that's an impressive collection of G clamps Doug, as is your joinery skills.

Best,

Bill

Thanks, Bill. Thats some from the box of small ones....if you have ever built a dinghy, no matter how small, you'll know just how many clamps you need! Herewith the curved piece planed and fitted using dowels and screws [no glue] in case it ever needs taking off. The dowel holes go right through both pieces so that they may be driven out from behind.

Looking very good Sir.  

The engineer in you always shines through. :thumbs

I have several of those "optic" clamps Doug - absolutely no idea how or where I acquired them but often wondered what their real purpose was.  They're too soft to be proper woodworking clamps ....................

Thank you Peter, as the stamp collector said 'Philately will get you anywhere...' Why doesn't it surprise me that you have Optic spirit clamps?! Though 'soft' I find them very useful for gentle jobs.

Herewith a tip for anyone wanting to make tighter bends, using scrap chipboard as a former. You don't need all those clamps if you go at it in two layers at a time. This will form the corners at the other end of the baseboard.

There we are, as far as I'm going for the moment, thats 9ft-10" long, 2ft wide down the side, curving to 3ft-6" x 1ft=10" at the right hand end, the far end is 4ft-6" x 1ft-3" but can continue anither yard to the left-hand wall.

Now I really will have to chose a track plan...

Poop-poop

Doug

Hey Doug - that looks really good.  Love those curved corners - far more aesthetic than square ones.

Track plans ?  I just start in one place and see what joins up ..................................... :oops:
