I have updated the track plan for the upper level after I noticed some mistakes on it last night and now shows part of the lower level tracks and the second incline as I didn't leave any room for them when I did the right hand curve for the upper level so I have corrected that,I have also added the rest of the baseboards that are removable from the layout that have the mainlines and incline on them.

Hopefully if I can get the tracks wired up in the hidden sidings this week I hope to start laying track on the upper level in 2 weeks time.

Hi Lewis

I have used full length sections of flexi track in the hidden sidings and cut some to different lengths to fill the gaps up but I used Xuron Cutters I bought from ehattons to cut the Flexi to length.


Work on the layout has completely stopped due to my back problem but I will be back working on the layout after my Holiday in August so work will restart the beginning of September.

Work has restarted on my layout in between me being away on holiday as my parents have put the caravan on a camp site for all of may so I am away this weekend and from the 22nd to the 31st but after may I will be working on it every day,also since I last posted last year I haven't really got much done due to my back problem but have done some track changes near the first incline for the new upper level track plan.


Next week I will wire all the lower point motors up and make the switch board but I still need to get four Hornby point motors for the lower level which I will order Sunday when I get back from Wales,then I can start on the upper track work and have more trains running.


I have been buying things here and there for the layout which I now have four Peco train sheds for my layout and four inspection pits.


I will post the new track plan next week

Here is my new track plan for the upper level and is roughly how the track will be laid,I did try and do the plan with peco streamline small points and long crossing but I couldn't get all the track in so I have kept to Hornby setrack points and crossing but my next layout will be alot wider at 8ft or 10ft so I can use peco all the way as the length will still be 20ft.


My station now curves around the layout with a small town above it and my Diesel depot is now on the hinged section which has four peco train shed units on it instead of only two,and I still have some room to add to it like an area to house my steam loco which might go in the bottom right corner above the incline and lower tracks.

I've managed to get some work done on the layout finally but I want to show how the lower mainline tracks were last year.

Image


And this is how they are now because I need to have the second incline on the inside from the upper level so it can join back up to the lower track.

Image

And now for work that has been done this week.

First I wanted to lengthen the incline to the upper level by two feet.


Image

I also fitted two point motors to the points that enter the hidden tracks on the far side of the layout.

Image


And two more Point motors two these two points.

Image


Image

And the motors fitted to the points.

Image


Tomorrow I will be mainly cleaning the loft up and then when I get back of my Hols I will wire all the lower point motors up to the control panel which I still have to build.

Hi guys been along time since I have posted anything about my layout due to my back problem I have which has been bad for the last year so I haven't been able to get up in to the loft to work on it but I am starting back on it today,so I am moving my thread up to first page so I don't have to go looking for it when I start posting updates on it which should be in the next week or so.

I'll never lose interest in my layout as I've spent to much money to lose interest in it.

Sorry Ben but no Ms Dynamite so I don't have a problem with keeping it a secret as I still live at home with my wonderful parents due to my back problem,but my parents don't like to know how much I've spent on it as it's the price of a good family car.
