We went to a exhibition yesterday and bought some things for the layout so we did a little bit of work.
Firstly, we got a length of flexi-track just to finish off some sidings which go behind the tunnel. We also got a deal on some Ballast, 4 200g bags for £5, which was quite good as one bag of ballast cost £1.75, so some money was knocked off. So after the track is weathered we'll be able to start ballasting. On the note of weathering, we've decided to buy a weathering pen designed for weathering tracks, this supposedly makes it alot easier to do it.
Finally, we got a cutting mat just to help with doing some cutting work, before we was just using a little work bench type thing we built for soldering.
We did a little bit of work on the layout yesterday as well. First, we tidyed up our soldering work on the switches a bit to try and stop any arching of the electricity which would cause a short circuit but also to make it look a bit tidier. To stop further arching, we decided it was best to put some small insulting strips to put on the solder This should stop any arching.
Thanks for reading,
