Still not got the electrics started. Its been freezing and i've been quite busy, but the tracks nearly there. I need to make the over-bridge still, but i've put all irj's in place, and bought some wiring. Just got to get the copper droppers sorted and bus line in, still.........
This road crossing will go under the railway into a hillside tunnel, and the lower line will cross under just to the right. Im a little worried my gradient (unknow..) may be too steep, but we'll see.
Those pesky ES and Pendo seems to be trying to get in every shot.
This is the top left corner exitting the station, I think i may cut the track and insert the points as below to allow better access for running off the freight line and mainline and depot.
On a happy note, father christmas (by that I mean parents and understanding gf
) treated me extreamly well. I guess the all want to see it done too and are trying to entice me to get my bottom in gear and make some time.
Lots more platforms. Well I guess I can have a station to play with, and also take time building my own special station. Might as well buy the last few to complete the above now for the intrim though.
With the above image, im pretty sure im going to add another baseboard to the left, and have the left hand track go onto the new board as a fiddle yard for un-used trains, coaches and trucks etc. Make a large train yard out of it.
Also got some rolling stock.
Hornby Class 66
Honby Class 67
x4 DHL wagons
x6 Asda wagons
Get some good length trains running hopefully.
