Mk2 of the upper level seems to be going better. Still a long way to go but the test runs are positive, no derailments at this time. 


It may be quite a sharp turn but it’s going to be a nice view eventually.

Happy new year to everyone who is remotely interested in reading about Teasel Bay. Hope you all have a great new year with your modelling projects!

I did order the Norwich/Liverpool blinds but I got the wrong one and could t be bothered to change! The Norwich / Liverpool passes just down the road and is a pretty long trip! My mum takes it from Liverpool and forgets her suitcase on the train… but that’s another story! Haha

What is this craziness!? 





Apart from Kevin (off Home Alone) who is riding on the wagons, these don’t look the right scale for Teasel… or are they! More to follow shortly.

Why thank you. Not bad for track which isn’t even on cork let alone fastened down!

So the other evening I built a 009 test track. 





And today a rather fetching teeny train arrived, in the form of a Bachmann Double Fairlie. 






A very nice runner straight out of the box. Currently running in on the test circuit. There is a tiny DDC chip in there as well! The plan is the a tourist railway in the top corner of the bay. Now I just need to decide on a new station name!!

Hi Chris.   That looks an excellent start for any modeller. But where in the grand scheme of things does 009 fit, meaning is the track near to 00gauge or N gauge. Best wishes Kevin

Thanks Kevin. 009 is the same gauge/scale as 00 but it’s narrow gauge. So just like the real Ffestiniog most things are a little smaller! Most importantly though it fits in with 00.

Hi Chris,
I look forward to your progress with the narrow gauge. I have planned one for Wombat Creek, but it has to wait until I have enough space to extend the layout.

From what I've read, these are very well made and run like a Swiss watch. Not to mention how good it looks.

So for all you worried about Teasel I managed to prise myself away from the Double Fairlie!

Work started on semi-permanent bridge 2.0. As 1.0 was built with haste mainly to provide a level between the right (Teasel Bay) and left (the eventual build of Norcott Station). 


2.0 will not have be a scenic section, given the todo list I have it will be this way for a while! The bridge had to be wide enough for two tracks and removable to allow easy access to the garage.  





The original holding points were removed as they were only secured through MDF. They are now connected to the main supports. The bridge can now take my weight, so I think that’s secure enough for a few trains!






To ensure safety of running stock I added a small lip to catch any derailments before the concrete floor does!






Makes a big difference now I don’t have to fear for the life of any test movements between the two!!

More work on the mainline. At a snails pace as usual! I now have the joiners in place which interlock to force the rails to join snugly. Due to the woodwork underneath I couldn’t take the droppers vertically down so they’ve been embedded in the cork. Once there is some ballast, they’ll be hidden!






Not sure how visible it is on photos but there is a subtle cant to the curve. I wanted to help the faster stock navigate the curve which is stealer than I’d have liked as you can see by the overhang of the Class 156, but space is always at a premium!






I quite liked this birds eye view, showing how the mainline sits into the existing scenery. Also shows a 2nd radius curve which I use to ensure I don’t over bend the flex when prototyping!

Hi Chris.  This looks very interesting, but, being a bit of a thicko, I don’t know what and why you are are doing it. I am certain that you have a clear plan, of the work, but, it has gone over my head. Best wishes Kevin
