That’s a good idea. I’m usually watching or following some steps at the same on my phone! But taking photos as I go is a grey idea.

Chris, any old phone or tablet will do ? As long as it has a camera. I have an old 32 bit Ipad which is no longer supported by Apple,  But it has a decent Camera on it which I use when I'm taking stuff apart, and if your dealing with small hard to see bits it has a pretty decent zoom on it which allows you to Get close in. Also has a notepad app on so I can keep notes as I'm going. I Just keep it by my work area  :thumbs

Cheers

Matt

I’m back after a little time off. I started my new job a month ago today and have caught win the whirlwind of getting up to speed. I did not have any space in my head to think about Teasel. Evenings were spent thinking I should head to the garage rather than getting in there and because I stopped thinking about Teasel I stopped visiting the forum!

I had to give my old laptop back to work when I left, which meant I had to source a new laptop for Railmaster and my software. New work lock their laptops down far more so I could install Railmaster but I’ve decided against it. I’ve sourced a new laptop but Railmaster doesn’t seem to be available on the Hornby website. I’ll have to drop them a message, unless someone has a copy they could send me!


Teasel came third in the Hornby photo of the year, which was pleasantly unexpected. Haystack for them to use the photo at all was rather nice. A little package arrived last week with a Scalesdale pub, a waggon and a centenary pen. That was also very nice of them. 


I managed to sneak into the garage on Sunday to get a few photos for the 3rd Virtual Model show. I wasn’t as prepared as normal. I must try harder again next year! The low sun provided some nice light though.

Tonight was the Teasel Bay Christmas Light switch on. The lights were turned on by none other than Santa!













I love the reflections on the sea!

I didn’t get any emails from YMRC to say anyone had commented. I was pleasantly surprised when I came can to the forum to see people had and very positively too! Thank you. 

Not sure where the emails had disappeared too though!?

Looking at the photos I desperately want to finish the backscene to hide the brickwork. I think it’ll make a very big difference for photos etc. 

After that in my head I’ve been planning Norcott station, which will be a rather different build to Teasel Bay station. Especially since I’m planning centenary. All in early planning at the moment though!

Good stuff ! Re the emails, they do seam to randomly stop appearing and then start up again. Just double check that you have still got it set to watch topic at the bottom left of the Topic after the last post. Then go into your account and check you have preferences still set to email you either when a post comes in Or daily ( I think without my checking again now that thats an option ?) Also double check that you still have your current active email listed. And finally check the spam folder if your email client has one as they CAN end up being put in their if your providers algorithm decides to. If none of those work then sit quietly on the naughty step and eventually the email Gods will forgive you and start sending you them again  :pathead
Looking forward to details on your next progression update  :thumbs

Cheers

Matt

Just in case - all my notifications on posts to the forum went in to the spam folder yesterday. They never have done before. Worth a look.

So it seems everything is going into the spam folder suddenly. Need to convince gmail that these emails are anything but spam! Haha.  Off to my favourite model shop tomorrow! Woo.

Back in the garage and the first thing to do is to rip up some cork on the top track. I had attempted to flatten the track bed with multiple layers of cork which just lead to an even more uneven service. On test runs trains would skip the track, not helpful for what will be a high speed line! So it had to go. 

The real issue is a lag in the chipboard. It was laid quite early on in the development of Teasel. Here is a photo from the archive. 






Time to make a brace to sit underneath to support it, and then hopefully test runs will be more successful!

I hate to say it Chris but in my experience Chipboard & outdoor environments don't mix, it just warps! In fact I don't even use it indoors..... It really does seem to need a lot of support to stop it. IMOP ply is a much better material provided it's not too thin, I used 6mm on my N gauge layout but wished I had used 9mm, now on my OO layout I am on 12mm, some may say overkill but as it is the base for everything that follows I felt a justified investment.

Fantastic pictures as always  :doublethumb

Merry Xmas
Roger

EDIT 12/12 I remember now why I got stuck with 6mm even though I wanted to change to 9mm for newer sections it was because the bulk of my point motors (some 60+) then were Peco and the pins had been cut to suit  :sad:
Since I left the hobby for a short time I sold everything, including the point motors and changed gauge hence everything has been allowed to reset for a fresh start.
I realise now your picture was from when you first constructed Teasel, not now so you are stuck for the time being with that chipboard so as I think you mentioned all you can do is re-enforce it from underneath, hope it works :)

Hi Chris,
 
I hope you get your high level roadbed braced enough to give good express running. Sealing the chipboard should help combat movement due moisture swelling from increased humidity levels in the garage, as well as winter / summer temperatures. If not, as Roger suggested, plywood should make a marked improvement and ideally should also be sealed on all sides, preferably in a warmer season.
 
How did your trip to Great Eastern Models go and did you get any Colbolt point motors?
 
Happy Christmas and Merry Modelling,
 
Bill

It’s a learning curve. When I started Teasel I started with what I know. My old childhood layout was two ovals on chipboard. I think the main issue with the board is me, I think the issue is because I’ve leaned on it.

Funny you should say that. I've been getting sporadic emails from more than one forum just lately.

Hi Chris

I always like your "special event" features. This years Xmas tableau was one of the best. Spectacular lighting.....very eye catching.

Congratulations on third place with Hornby.......looking forward to seeing how you incorporate your pub prize into Teasel Bay.

Best wishes
