As yet un-named ATSF inglenook

Postby SR/ScR Fan » Sun Jan 29, 2017 6:55 pm

Well, I think it is time I start building again, as Tilley Yard South celebrates its 2nd birthday this month.

I really enjoyed the inglenook puzzle of TYS, so this is another inglenook, but a 5-3-3 puzzle.

Measuring 8ft by 18inches (or 244cm by 44cm in new money), split over two boards. The location is undecided but I am leaning towards New Mexico. The dry desert areas being a sharp contrast to snowy urban Chicago.

So far the boards have been built, the track laid and soldered together, and playing...I mean testing is underway.

Okay, cool!
At least you can keep all your stock.
Will observe with interest.

Haha Nick. No not quite. Maybe next year.

Thanks kerluk. I have found this quite the experience so far as I haven't ever built a layout that splits in two.

The boards are lined up using aluminium L pieces, then attached with bolts and wingnuts.

The track at the board edges was soldered to panel pins and then cut with a dremel. I was very pleased having never done this sort of thing before.

A few pics:

Most of the track will be buried in either asphalt or that dirty ashy/sandy type of ballast seen in American yards.

Yes John, my ever growing stock collection was one of the reasons for going bigger....

Long time no post!

Well we are getting somewhere with this now.

Image

I had to modify the board so the dock crane would reach over the side, then add a small board for the main bulk of the water.

Image

Then paving began.

And this is where it is now. Paving completed and building work begins.

I love the boat, and the convincing warehouse being built in the background. Very good. :)

Thanks for the kind words chaps.

The warehouse is a heavily modified Walthers Reliable Warehouse and Storage building kit.

True a long time without visible activity ...
But obviously you've not been sitting on your hands !!
You made me laugh about needing a larger layout because of your growing
freight wagon stock ....... That my friend could lead to an ever extending layout.
