Coming Right Along!
Progressing beautifully, Will! :thumb: Keep us posted.
The photographer came again.
yep, my Uncle dropped over this afternoon with his camera and we took 11 pictures. I put them up on my website
Here are two shots that give the overall view or the CVR "Alcove".
But don't look at the mess under the layout.
Eventually, there will be a fascia on and skirting around the benchwork.
Great shots Will...
It always amazes me to see how small Nscale really is - you've packed a lot in there! Now you need to get some Polar Express posters to replace the Mickey pix...
Great Pictures Will
My son in law is building a N gauge L/O in the room my Traction empire was
Much to my granson`s delight So your pictures will help him . :thumb: Thanks :thumb:
Looks like the same type of bench work he wants too.
Chris, send him the link to my website, as things improve, I will be updating the site.
No worries Will, he lives with me :thumb:
That looks excellent!.. how long is the layout?.. you seem to have fitted a bunch in
Thanks Graham, the layout is 11.5' x 5.5' on the left and 6.5' on the right.
The center penninsula is 6' deep.
More is explainded on the website.
Thanks.. You seem to have managed to put a whole lot in without making it looked cramped. I have around 11x10 and it seems to be more compressed, but that may just be my lousy lighting and a ceiling that's only 1/2" higher than my head!
I know how you feel. Do you have any of these to contend with?
graham, do you have your trackplan digitized?
I went to the two links in your signature, but could not find it.
Say Doc, who are those fellows on TV at your place?
Also, I don't think I want to visit either your or Graham's layouts...
I am 6'3" and I know I would come out with a headache. :cry:
Why that's my namesake, Doc Holliday, and his good friend Wyatt Earp of course, the official mascots of the BAD Western! The guy in between them is just horsing around.
That's kind of you to print instructions on your duct work... Here I have just been doing it by trial and error... It's a wonder I am not dain bramaged
Just to keep you folks up to date, tonight I finished the wiring on the "Mainline Control Panel". Next comes finishing the panel enclosure and mounting it on drawer glides so it can tuck under the river at The Forks Of The Credit.
I'd like to see a pic of that... didn't you say 36 blocks?! Congratulations on getting it done...!
Andrew, the Mainline Panel has 20, the yard has the remainder.
Also, I still do not have a camera.
I have to wait until my Uncle comes over.
Way to go Will!!! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
The control panel is nothing impressive.
Just a piece of pegboard material 24" x 12" with the track plan drawn with a black marker and 20 mini toggle switches up through the peg holes.
There is also a Bachmann controller wired to the pegboard to power the system. Yes, I said Bachmann, remember I am starting with two Bachmann train sets,
