Re my Job #895. My train controller mate decided he no longer had a use for these




so they have been plonked ready for some draft  positioning . The actual anchoring will be on a 3mm base to enable full scenic work to be done off -layout before re-setting back into the space.

I will just have to get Gavin Thrum to come to sort them out - Max knows about this modeller here in SA. A sample of his work

Yes, Gavin is a talented modeller - his South Australian outline layout wins trophies each time it is exhibited.

Sol, I'm sorry and it's nothing personal.

Usually I really love your modelling but the stuff in this shot looks absolutely cr#p.  If you send it up to me in France, I'll try to find somewhere out of sight for it on my planned layout - I'd hate it to spoil yours .................:roll::roll::roll::roll::roll::roll::lol:



p.s. Would your train controller mate like to be my mate as well ? :roll::roll::roll:

With the arrival today of the outstanding point motors, the MPD trackage etc is finished.  The panel as depicted in post #57 , I cheated & added another piece of MDF at the top (  slightly crappy looking but from the normal operating distance of nearly 2 feet, it will do ) All motors operated via toggles switches & Masterswitch V1's.

The start of Mainline signalling




The signal is from the Eckon range & indicates not only the point leaving from the storage but the status of the Mainline past Barnstable which is around the corner past those low hills.

Just an update to the main station of Tawnton.

There are storage tracks behind the station named Tiverton.



the  early days.

 

So I had thought of hiding them so by using 200mm high 5mm thick MDF, I have created a viewing block ( to be painted the pale blue)

tunnels mouths to be added at each end.

A view over the board...

Glad you left the tracks in. I bet it gives a different perspective to the layout having those tracks now hidden.

I had to instal 3 IRDOTS before I contemplated hiding them so I got IRDOTs with 2ft leads for the  emitters & detectors as fitting IRDOTs directly under the tracks as normal was almost an impossibility due to 2 lots of shelving under the layout.

I now can determine which track has a train stored in it so it helps to prevent driving another train into one already stored.

Now painted




at the far end of the above photo is Metcalfeville

as one can imagine, a lot of work in that area. I think about job # 983 on the list.

In fact Tawnton itself will keep me busy for a loooong time.

Another small job was to give the brewery an additional track - currently one has fuel tankers & grain hoppers together


temporary tracks to give an idea




now installed



now sleepered & painted

The entire brewery area will take some time in buildings, etc to give it a "proper" look.  Job Number 1004 I think.

At least you'll be able to enjoy a pint whilst you're doing it Sol. :roll:

That extra siding makes a lot of sense and gives additional "operating potential". :thumbs

Trouble is Peter, the crew want more money as there are more tracks to work exclam:  A bit rich I thought as the crew member requesting an increase in pay, was the one suggesting the extra track.

That's the way it goes Sol - I think they call it a "work creation scheme" - keeps them off the dole so you, the taxpayer, don't have to pay them therefore, you can expect a lower tax bill next financial year...............:lol::lol::lol:
