Page 3 i can't have that can i.

Well work has restarted on the layout as i have finished the three crossings at the entrance to the Hidden sidings that join to the incline,and moved two upper supports to get another in so all are now 12 inches apart just need to fit a piece in the middle of them to stop any sagging that might accrue.

The hinged section has been bugging me for two months now as to how to hinge it but i have settled on hinging it to drop down than to hinge up,and i hope to start it tomorrow afternoon and get the boards fitted by Wednesday afternoon.

Also i will have a scenic board in front of the incline to break the layout up with a tunnel opening to make it more interesting so trains don't seem to just go in circles all the time,also my second incline will be made longer from 8ft to 16ft long and will come off the upper main lines further around the layout on the other side.

Wow! Using every inch of space there - well done. Never seen so many crossovers!

Coming along nicely there! Lots of operation interest and lots of potentially excellent viewing points!

Cheers

Yes using every inch of space as once all track is down and trains running there will be just enough room for two or three people which will be me controlling the trains and one or two watching them going round, and with me using the three crossings i can now drive a train out from the hidden sidings onto the mainline and either stay on the mainlines or drive onto the incline to the upper level.

Haven't got anything done on the layout since the last updated due to a bad cold which has been affecting my asthma so i have been fighting that off,but i hope to be back in the loft this weekend to get the hinged section built and in place for the trains to start running again.

DCC has been pushed back to late march now as this month i decided to buy more scalextric gear for my scaley layout i am building in march.

Well i have managed to get off my backside and start the hinged section which i have got the bit that hinges to the main layout i just need to finish off the frame of that part and then i will move onto the other bit that hinges to that,and once that is done i will build the end section that joins to the main layout that will carry the mainlines to the hinged section but that section has to be removable so i can get to the end of the layout with having to crawl under under it.



Pics to follow and i will take photos as i build it.

Here are the photos as promised.

The first ones are of just the hinged bit without the rest of the framework.

And these are with the rest of the framework attached.

I just need to make the second bit that will hinge off that for the incline and make the frame that goes at the other end to carry the tracks from the hinged section onto the main layout,and i hope to have all that done by the weekend and trains running on the mainline on the hinged section and the incline will be done when i start to lay track on the upper level.

Second that Dynamite. Lovely bit of 'chippy' work you've done there. Nothing like building a solid peice of 'furniture' to make you feel all manly and yet at the same time arty and creative :lol:

I'm about to embark on a 12' long x 18" wide x 22" high potting table-cum-garden table to house my storage sidings and station approach lines which I've been stalling on a bit. You nice bit of handywork has given me the hurry up!

Cheers mate, glad it's all coming together so nicely
