Hey Tom, The white is polystyrene, and I used some plywood for the corner sections, and some thin wood with supports for the ramp itself. The ends (where it rejoins normal level) i've had to file down to make it as smooth a section as possible. I put a better quality vid up last night as well, but i...

Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

Oooooofffff well its been a fair few months, and i've only been in the loft ONCE in this time, and that was only to steal the carpet to put in the garage for my new baby/hobby. Now its coming to winter, so my new toy will have to go away for the horrible salty months, so I guess I should get my rear...

Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

Next job is one of the inclines has sunk on one side so i need to raise that a little more. Over the back end though behined the water-tanks, my points arn't level...

Re: Curzon Street Station

Will be looking forward to watching this one as it progresses :)

RE the sidings, what about moving the points round the corner, giving yourself another 10cm or so length for those long HST's :D Just a random idea?

Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

Cheers :) Im so new to this, but already im really liking the Class 60. Nice model, i'll certainly get another one in another livery :) I'd like to run full length, but i think i'll only be able to squeeze another coach onto the Pendolino to fit in the station. The layout size should be able to run ...

Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

Well STILL no wiring, but the incline and bridge is in. I've tested the tracks in this section with a loco and wagons and it seems to pull ok. http://images28.fotki.com/v976/photos/4/48802/7140865/Update025-vi.jpg Ha haaaaaaa, 2 full circuits at last. http://images46.fotki.com/v1452/photos/4/48802/7...
