Hi there,
this project has been standing for a while, but on Sunday I spent some time with this loco again.
Although there are other things to do I decided to give this project some attention.
I had already roughly cut out the buffer beam platform in front.
So now I drilled the holes for the two lanterns, the hand rails for the shunter and the two cuts
where I need to bend the outer sections up, the middle stays flat and must still be shortened.
Photo one shows me holding the buffer beam with the platform on top and the two lanterns in loosely.
Photo two shows the platform drilled and cut.
Now I must make a mandrill of the correct diameter to bent the two end pieces up.
I do not have any accurate measurements for this so guesstimate the dimensions from photos.

Hi Ed, you are the winner! :thumb:

The word "duckboard" was created during the early 20th century to describe the boards or slats of wood laid down to provide safe footing for the soldiers of World War I across wet or muddy ground in trenches or camps. The original duckboards didn't always work as intended though.

Used in workshops to ensure the artisans don't get cold feet.

Saw these a lot at caravan parks in the ablution blocks at the showers.

Have a great day guys. It's going to be a cold weekend.

Last night I made sure that my farm can work and got a quick picture by laying the basis on the layout.
I then worked out the last section of track and I glued down the cork.

Tonight I can start with the track work for this section.
Points have to be modified, painted and feeders soldered in.

Regards, Evert.

So, on Monday I received all my farm buildings  :biggrin:

Farm House.
Old Ladies Mill, Tripsdrill, In real life this is part of the theme park, but I will use it as a actual Mill for grain that can receive or deliver produce to the Kibri Grain Elevator.
Heyloft from Vollmer.
And a set of Kibri parcade fencing.

Then I also found all the parts for the Vollmer LocoShed I have. I will change this one in a single shed.
All accessories for this is still outstanding and will be collected in due time.

Kibri Signal Tower and Station canopies I also have, but I will build the platforms myself so fit the track.

Here is some pictures  :biggrin: Enjoy.
