Are you going to add some posts between the left corner and the right corner post under the building? That's a long span with nothing underneath, especially for granite floor loads. I think that's what you meant by 'more pilings'?

Of course!! I was just testing the right position... I do know the weight of a buiding plus a load of stones :) Post/pilings or whatever they are called will be added, and diagonal bracing too, as shown in the sketch...!

Troels, I leave the forum for a fortnight and that's the moment when you feel the urge to resume model building... I will make more trips if this is the solution...
Very nice new structure.

Hi Troels.

Not to take away from the discussion of your current build, but I'm working my way through the previous 600 pages of threads. Did I read correctly that you used Peco OO track, for the layout? The UK track, not the US style HO track?

Thanks.

Nice job Troels. I expect we expect a high standard from you all the time. I need to try balsa. You have mastered making it 'look' right.
