HI

Yes all Track is set track till the two middle boards of when it flys over the viaduct as a dingle track Post 1980's , so that I can run one train in either direction on same track which will get the folks confuesed, but really I am just extending the Auto Track from T-Gauge in order to do so.
Just got some scenery stuff today as shop was open , so will be getting on with that side of things.

Will post more updates when I can but not good at taking photos , so may use the film link and send to youtube when I have got the chance to do so.

Keep well.
PS Layout is going to be 16 by 3 foot.
:D

HI Girls and Guys

Just tokeep you upto date.
I have now stripped off all straight set trackfor that I can now have the flexi track on as that works better for smooth running and also not as many sections to join which can be the weak spot in set track.

Please see pics below
ps most before I stripped out the set track. :D

regards
Graham

I must admit to being VERY impressed by your new layout, and an unusual subject as well. You have done a great job of your 3D design and printing. Is it your own 3D printer and what type?

I am really struggling trying to learn 3D, my stroke damaged brain learns new things so slowly.

All the very best with your future work.

David

HI David

My printer is a Wanhao Duplicator 9 300-300, Using Lightwave 11.5 for my modeling and Wanhao Cura for the slicing.
I have still have got 3 boards to do with two Ribblehaed Viaduct and the last board will consist of Ribblehaed Station with Quarry. :D

All 3d parts are drawn then to scale down as I like to scale at 1 by 1 then sent as STL to the printer. :shock:
Still working on scenic part as it is still on basic mode, until I have all boardfs to same dagree, then I will proceed to finishing stages . Plus lots of wiring to do. :D

Well off now.
Take care all

Regards
Graham

HI gang

I have used Set trrack for the eletronic point turnouts and the power and isulator pieces ,but all other track will be done by flexi track to cut done on price as if I did it all in set track it would have cost at around figure £750 so flexi it was.

Please see pics of the control board with mounted switches on and board 1.

ps still on with the wiring underneath boards. :D

Graham

HI
I have now got Boards 2 and 3 which have the Ribblehead Viaduct on them.

Will now clean boards as not seen them for over a year and start to get to work on them.

Will need to make two re-enforced walls for the middle thick piers as these will be at each end of a baord and do not want to have the bridge destoyed whist in transit or when setting up.

no pics as just got these back from club room.

Will keep you all upto date.

Regards
Graham
