Jeff - thanks for the encouragement regarding the dowels. The red dog ones are the ones I'm after - just wouldn't dare tackle Perry's type :? :? - unfortunately, they seem to have ceased advertising in RM for now and I couldn't remember their name - thanks for saving me looking it up elsewhere :D . I've got all the back issues from last year so will try to dig out their advert.

Thanks for the compliments Tim - always very, very welcome with me !!!!

More to follow soon but got to do a couple of swimming pool repair jobs this week - weather permitting. Might have to wait until [size=9]shhhhhh! - you know who is in Australia.

Over the last few days, whilst the weather has been so foul, I hid in the garage with my tool box playing trains. :lol: :lol: :lol:

The second board has track down and leads just onto the third board. You may recall I'm building it in modular form until the permanant home is ready so I have to make joints at each end of each board to re-connect later.

The 2nd & 3rd boards (to the right of the station throat) incorporate gradients to get the single line branch up over the doubled main lines. The gradients are approx. 1 in 45 - both up and down so I can get cvlearance in half the linear distance. The first 30 cms or so had a 1 in 90 "transition" gradient. The first board is 5ft long and the 2nd only 4ft at the end of which, I've turned through 90 deg. to lead around the corner.

Here's some photos of the gradients:

At the board joints, I've soldered the rails to brass screws to strengthen the joint.

Sorry about the apparent "spottiness" of the photo - don't know what happened - I think it's maybe filings from cutting through the track after it was soldered up.

After cutting the joints, I ran a coach over the joint to make sure it was a smooth crossing - apparently no problems there !!!

You can also make out the branch above the coach climbing as the mains fall - clearance at this point but took it up/down another 10mm just to make certain !!

The 2 boards showing the lines diverging as the mains drop and the branch climbs away on the left. The mains will eventually be underneath the branch and lead to the "low level" fiddle at the back of the layout. The branch line will be the "scenic" line with maybe a coutry halt before it enters the "high level" dead-end sidings allowing me to have a "valley" section on the other side of the layout - maybe with a viaduct or Brian's Padstow girder bridge- I LOVE bridges/viaducts !!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

This is the silver lining to the bad weather cloud then Petermac. :wink: That's looking really good and will certainly allow a lot of great scenery.

That's right Bob - every cloud has a train shed under it !!! :lol: :lol:

I'm doubly fortunate in that "the Boss" is in Australia although when I glance at the "list" she's left me to do, if I carry on like this, I can see me living in the garage for keeps.............................now, there's a thought !!! :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll:

I have heard there are extremely high winds in france at the moment the worst on record Your house has survived fine but the only unfortunate casualty was the list you wife left it got blown away in the storm. and you cant remember what was written on it.
Its a shame because you gonna have to stay in the garage now and work on the layout. :D :D :D

Great progress on the layout Petermac, and I certainly understand that thought, but do you have an internet connection in the garage? :roll: :roll: :roll:

Thanks Guys for all your kind comments - very much appreciated - they help me to keep fired up. It can be a little lonely beavering away on your "tod" in a garage with the wind howling and rain blashing down outside - particularly when I have to make my own coffee whilst the "Boss" relaxes in the sun in Oz. !!!

Wayne & Phill, I've checked out the interent possibilities and mains switch in the garage - neither exist at present but both are possible - just in case !!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
