track laying

All track is the new Peco 'mainline' 009 track. The 18" radius points are extremely well made and stock runs through them very smoothly. With a tiny modification, they can be made to be DCC friendly. This is not something I have bothered with in the past but as the facility is there, it seemed pointless to ignore it.

All the trackwork is installed on the first board. It has been ballasted and weeds added while the platform is constructed along with the shelter. The working colour light signal is wired and a Tortoise motor fitted to the point.

The second bridge is built. This is a Noch laser cut product and is absolutely excellent.

All of the trackwork is installed and the layout tested using DC.
