About time for another update, I'm collecting materials for the rock filled wall, meanwhile I just couldn't ignore the bit along the very front of the board. Well here it is, shock horror three rail track,
Fear not I'm not yet regressing to my childhood Hornby Dublo, the answer is here.
Half a mixed gauge point.
Nothing clever it's a left hand Peco 009 point. I removed the curved point blade, cut the stock rail and bent it inwards to meet up with the frog. Then I chopped out a section of rail and sleepers and inserted the half point to make up the missing rail. I had to replace the rail joiner which served as a hinge for the blade and it's a bit clunky so I may be reworking it later for now it works.
Wiring was dead simple it's just like a left hand point. I treated the left hand rail as the common return and put in a switch to change the controller from standard to narrow gauge rails, There's little danger of wanting to run two trains at once.
Here's the rest of the new bit looking remarkably full.
At the front of the narrow gauge track is the sole narrow gauge motive power a Kato 4 wheel chassis, which one day may get a tram engine body.
as you can see the little Decauville steamer is loaded up and on it's way to Boston Lodge for some attention from Narrow Gauge steam fitters.
Now I can't put it off for any longer I have the 2mm square mesh so I'll have to have a go at bending up 1/76th one metre cubes and fill them with budgie grit.
