Made my first set of legs today, these are for the smaller board for the mainline fiddleyard.

These have been made fixed as i intend touse the legs from this board as a storage rack for some of the smaller boards, the others will be more storable.

Image
this is the board the legs are for.

Image
My layout will sit fairly high, 3'6" to be precise

Image
Image
Image

Image
I added a second brace near the bottom to add atability

Image
a pair made up

Image
Testing they fit

Image
Image
cross bases to make the structure rigid

Image
The finished article

This took up the last of my wood so the others will have to wait for a bit, but on the roling stock news i have recently got hold of a farish Royal Scot 6115 and have ordered the royal 67 from dapol

Finally got myself the main unit for the mainline, yes a centro 150. I'm very impressed with the model and it puts my ohter units to shame.

Track Laying Has Commenced!!

I decided to lay the first piece of track!!! It is only one piece but it is the most expensive piece.

Shown in its glory

I also had a little play with my two digital engines

And again with some choc/cream Colletts

A milestone has been reached, just got to borrow my dads solder iron and we'll be in business!!!
