Well folks it's spring here at the Wombat Limestone Company, with the Wattle in full bloom it seemed like a good time of year to
take some photo's!
















I also have some photo's of the Fordson logging train with a load of pulp wood and cut timber, see below









So there you have it folks, thanks for looking.


Cheers Dave

There is still time to get a small layout running. So far I count three operating cork boards railroads.

I picked up two more cork boards that were a full 2x3 feet. I will be making two more railroads that join together into a 2x6 foot traveling railroad.

I started on this board 4 1/2 hours ago.

Switches on the right are #3 wye turn outs and the switch on the left is a #4.



I hope to finish this board tonight.

Thanks Jeff Andy and Lynn,

I finished the track work and electric one of the new cork boards that will become one half of a traveling layout.

Sorry about the crummy phone pictures. The 10" curves and all switches will accept a Bachmann Heisler pushing or pulling 18 foot cars.









Okay I know joining two boards together is bending the rules but I thought you might be interested and if the third wye was not added this would be an inglenook layout and would work in the space.

There are bigger photo's of the Fordson on page 9 of this thread that I posted just after I built it, there is also a bit of info on what went into it.

I don't use Coke cans for the corrugated iron anymore, I'm now using those throw away aluminium oven trays as the thickness of the
aluminium in them is perfect to work with, I can knock out about a dozen sheets in under ten minutes with the corrugated iron maker.

I reckon the next question you will ask is what is the corrugated iron making machine, I bought it from a hobby shop here in Oz, as far
as I know it's there own product, called Brunell Hobbies. If you click on this link it should take to the right page on there web site

http://www.brunelhobbies.com.au/ironmaker/ironmaker.htm

The guards on the drive line were made from aluminium bent over a pencil and the chain gaurds are wittled from strip wood.

I don't why the photo's on the post came out so small as I'm sure they were 125kb, or close to it.



Cheers Dave
