Cheadle Bay - N Gauge in the round

Postby McScooby » Fri Apr 29, 2016 9:24 pm

As per my planning thread, here http://www.newrailwaymodellers.co.uk/Forums/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=49738 I've actually started work on the layout today. I've picked up a new toy to help build the board.

My new toy: -

Board built: -

Under side: -

Supervisor: -

Test laying of the track: -

My next job is to actually varnish the board and then I can start to do some testing of the plan itself.

Looks neat!

Odd thought: if the two inner sidings of each pair instead curved to make a loop, that could still be worked as a siding from either end, but allow extra movement possibilities, principally for freight.

I've finally been able to get the board varnished, only taken 6 days. Damm thing called work. :x

The Woodland Scenic foam track bed I plan to use has been ordered and should be here in a week or so. My next job is to work out how I'm going to control the point son my layout, not sure if to use point motors or wire in tube.

Taking my son to Derby railway show at the weekend so will see what ideas I can find there.
