Pete

I don't know if this is any help with your project, but go here http://www.ahrdorf.de/index.html it's in German but loads of pics, on the menu on the left hand side click on bahngeschichte, loads of pics of the railway and a map.

Hi

That's been my primary source, it's a great site, well worth putting through the google translator.

Thanks for posting though, much appreciated.

Update 05/08/07

Postby Pete » Sun Aug 05, 2007 5:18 pm

Hi

I've been doing some more track work today, it's the first time in a month that I've had chance:

Image

The two tracks to the front are the mailines, the other tracks service the goods area , and a branchline.

Image

Image

Tracklaying on the left hand side has stalled until I get a curved point. The track joins need some sleepers inserted and I'm going to start ballasting the station area once I've decided on the ballast colour (my shed is full of sample sections of track with various colours awaiting aesthetic approval!)

Good to see you making progress Pete

Can't wait until the scenics start - it will really come to life then

Kind observation but...

No that's where it branches a bit for the station area, I think it appears exagerated in the photo.

Wobbly track!!! I don't do wobbly track :wink:

Nice work as always - I'm looking forward to seeing this progress...

Is that extra framework you've built there ? A larger scenic area ?

Yes, there will be a river at the level or the framework, that flows around on three sides (a bit of an ox bow in formation). There'll be a steep bank down from the track level to the river.

Managed to avoid geography at O level, but I'm sure I'll bluff my way through.

Signal Box

Postby Pete » Sat Aug 11, 2007 9:17 am

Hi

Started scratchbuilding some structures last night for my layout. First off was an attempt at a signal box, there will be two of these on the final layout, this one is a test really to get the proportions:

Image

The stairs are a bit wobbly, but you try building them in N-gauge step by step!! :D A lick of paint will hide many evils :wink:
They won't be seen anyway, they will be tucked out of site with a tactfully placed tree I expect.

There are a quite a few details still to add, a few lamps, ridge tiles, guttering, downpipes, glazing, etc.

I'm about 80% happy, so he might be allowed to stay for now.
