Very, Very nice Ed.....

Mmmmmm, I like Jörg's idea of the E shaped Layout.....
Ed, do you know what the number of the curves are on the current layout sections? And send me some pictures.

I can draw you some ideas with SCARM?

Cheers, Evert  :biggrin:

Good Morning All.....

Yea, It's been a while, but the Catenary change at my Station is finally complete  :biggrin:
Took me almost 3 weeks, but I think it looks great. I clean the track with my Tomix Cleaning car and it works great.
I have not put my Peco cleaning Block or WoodlandScenics Cleaning Stick on the layout for the past two months and my trains run like a dream.

Enjoy the pictures  :thumb:

Cheers and speak again soon.

Good Morning All.......

OK, so the progress is slow, but it is getting there.
Picture 1 is the kit I have for building this.

Most of the poles are up and the wires are in. I still need to add some details and some small bits that need some painting.
I also have to add the tension wires and tensioners.

I took the old crossing out and rebuild it, think it is much better now  :thumb:
Then some bushes and then I think it will be done again......  :biggrin:

Cheers and enjoy the pictures.

Hello All......

Yea, this is why they call this a lifelong hobby  :biggrin:

I decided to rebuild the scenery in front of my station.  O:-)
I'm also going to change the catenary from being only one line to be all 3 lines. I will look more realistic and the double poles with cross wires should look quite impressive.

I cleared the current single poles and also removed all the scenery stuff, I still want to remove little bit more of the ballast.
I have placed 2 sets of catenary poles in place, just to see if it will work. Will add about 6 sets.

Think this will be a nice change to the front of the layout.

Cheers, Evert

Werner, if you are willing to test something....

The floor of you LocoShed.... I would pour a watery mixture of creatstone on the outside of the track level with the top of the rail.
For the inside I would fill it till the top of the sleepers. Once it is dry you can sand it lightly and then paint. Should work well and will look GREAT.....  :thumb:

If you do not want it that permanent, build it from bluefoam, easy to work with, to shape and sand. Same way I built my HO platforms.
I would also build the outside of the track level with the top of the rails and inside level with the top of the sleepers. Should work quite well.

Just my idea.....

Cheers, Evert.

OK, so I was looking for a LocoShed for my Layout.....
The Marklin shed is so scares and if you find it is cost a fortune, so Alan Golding mentioned a Kleiwe single door shed.
Found it between Ed's stuff that is for sale. It is a N scale shed, but the size of the roof tiles basically match the size of the tiles on the one house I have, so I decided to lower it into the layout slightly and I think it works perfectly...... I really think it works well.

Then I was also playing around with the trees Chris Lourens make, think it can really work by the Station and the houses..... Very cool, I like it.

Here is some pictures  :biggrin:

Nice..... This is really going to look awesome when it is operational.....
