Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

Not a huge update. Had to pull up some baseboards in one corner (luckily no track laid) as it had started to bend a little. It was the last few baseboards I laid and I got a little lazy with the supports, so i've pulled the whole corner out and re-done the supports. Just a few final bits and i'll be...

Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

Not much of an update. Just got most of the station layed and the mainline corners. Need to get some more points, then the fun part of modifying the points and start the electrics. 8 car length http://images33.fotki.com/v1142/photos/4/48802/199442/Update5-vi.jpg I have some better lighting to instal...

Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

At the moment there won't be a 2nd level. It requires too much framework and a lot more track/points. As a complete noob, I thought it was going to be too much trying to make helixes, curved sloped track etc. So for the moment, bar the over-track bridge, it'll remain on one level... Never count out ...

Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

Well theorectically a Eurostar is a HST ;) Moreso than a IC 125 unit... Those ES need converting to DCC yet, I got them cheap off ebay. Im glad I did though as i can measure how much room i need, how long the curves are etc. Think the station will be able to take at least an 8 car ES, but i'd like t...

Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

Well I was going to buy a whole new command center, but after chatting with the local model railway shop guy (who doesn't like hornby), he thinks running two select units and uprated adapters will suit me fine. Im going to be running the points on manual switches. Im not looking forward to the wirin...

Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

Well its been a long time since i've been able to do anything more. Mainly looking at other layouts, getting more ideas, and been saving what I can. Well the days come where I got to spend my cash and get some track and get this layout started. I've scrapped the 2 level layout above, its just too co...

Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

Hi there again. Supports, well the bulk of it is screwed all into the loft supports. Although across the /\ end of the loft, i've got 3 legs. One left, one right, one in the middle. Its very sturdy and isn't going to go anywhere. Top layer is completly in and screwed down now. Just thats little brid...

Re: 1st layout, a long road ahead

Arrrgghhh, back to more reading then :lol: WEll, this is a basic basic plan. Red lines are the baseboards. THe inner red lines are the 2nd lower level. Grey lines are the tracks on the 2nd lower level, obviously the curves, even though hidden, will be R2 and R3 tracks. I'll be making the curves that...

1st layout, a long road ahead

Well, been a member for a while, look in on others layouts and have had loads of inspiration. I've had the basics for a while, but never really got into it. Always wanted a model railway since I was young (pah 27 now), and now i've got a "crib" I can start with the loft. Going to be modern...

Good idea this if you can get a 373 cheap.

New DCC ready trains are about £80 I think.
