I did start a thread on the previous forum but, when it went down, all was lost (fortunately !!)

Having studied comments on the forum, I've had to have a slight re-think !! As ever, time, cash and space just won't permit me to build the complete East Coast main line on my workmate !!

The basic station plan - all I've roughly planned up to now - will remain the same - twin tracks, bay platform and a couple of sidings incorporation goods shed, cattle dock and engine facilities with headshunt - the main difference is that the twin tracks will converge into single track once outside the platform area. My main line has now become a branch line !!

As for the name - I just don't have a clue. I had thought of "Dunnow Junction"; "Whishton Petesworth"; "Petesdream Magna" etc.etc.

Ideas would be gratefully received.

Petermac

I like Dunnow Junction but Petesworth could be good, combined with something else.

Just started Ben but planning is well underway - at least for the 2 initial boards - the station area. Not too sure what will happen at each end of these boards but it is designed to be expanded.

You can see the boards on the baseboard thread.

Can you copy your baseboard post with the pictures into here Petermac? This will keep all your layout information in the one place as well as any appropriate postings you make elsewhere, as in your Baseboard topic. Cheers.

OK Bob - if I can find out how to do it !!

I presume I just use copy - paste ?

I'll give it a bash.

Here's the latest on my baseboards.

Basically, it's a sort of "open-top" with the trackbed being raised 35mm above the sub frame. The idea behind this is that (at some later stage) I want to run at 2 levels. I can therefore drop 1 track by 35mm whilst raising the other by the same amount giving my clearance in half the usual distance.

There will be 2 boards like this - each 5ft x 2ft 6" covering a station. The layout will extend into open countryside on each side - cuttings, tunnels and bridges spring to mind.

The sub frame (glued and screwed) is 70mm x 22mm, the risers are 10mm ply, the track bed is 10mm chipboard and the former at each end of the boards is 15mm ply for added strength at the board joints. As you can see, the 2nd piece of chipboard has yet to be cut and placed. The trackbed is screwed to the 10mm ply riser and should be self-supporting between the risers so that point motors etc. can be fixed/accessed below without too much difficulty.

That's great, now we can see your progress right from the bare baseboards in this thread. Thanks for taking the trouble.

Pleasure Bob - I'm only a little embarrassed that all you masters on here should have any interest in my humble offerings !! :oops: :oops:

I've surely got a long way to go and a lot of learning to do but, with all the help on here, it'll gradually take shape.

Sure it will and if we can stop you making some of the mistakes that we made then that's even better.

I've been playing around with some Peco templates and realised that points take up a huge abount of space !!

The result is, my plan won't fit where I wanted it to ! :oops: :oops:

As ultimately, I don't think space weill be a major problem (within reason), I've decided to extend the planned 10ft station section by a further 5ft board. This should allow me to get my "throat" as I want it without having to use either small radius points or too tight radius curves. If possible, I see flowing lines with gentle curves using no less that med. radius pointwork.

Back to the drawing board but not too bad - I've already thought about what to do with the extra space.

I'd do a track plan but just can't get to grips with the CAD freebies - the scale comes out completely wrong and, as my screen isn't 8ft wide - I can't see what happens to the end of the track off screen !!!!

Back soon.

Petermac

Have you tried Dave's DRail Petermac. It's the easiest track software I have ever used.

2nd attempt at photos !!

The "basic" framework before adding the risers for the track bed. As you can see, I learn from the forum and there are 3 holes for all the wiring !!
The track bed "datum" is 3.5cm above the framework. As 1 track rises, the other will fall allowing for a track clearance of 7cm in half the normal length.










Hope it works !!

Petermac
