    Patrik,

    Great start.. I noticed that the 2 x 4 that you have under the sections are width-horizontal, you may want to reinforce that with a 2 x 4 with the width vertical for more strength.

    It has been a while since I updated this thread. Havent been modeling that much this year, until one month ago when I started to work on a smaller section, 7'x28'' (210 x 65cm). This section can be later be connected with the other planned sections when (if) I start building those.

    Overall view from a photo one month ago.



    One week ago, the track workers finnishing off the track and ballast laying.



    Here I have weathered the ballast.

    Patrik I like what you've started. I will be following closely. I too will be starting a layout although more modest than yours in the next couple of months and hope to start a thread on this forum.

    Hi Dave I'm from the small HO side but I've used a router most of the time it's just a little missy but with a jig you get nice round holes. Tom

    How did you cut the turntable hole? Sabre saw? I have to admit my efforts to get a nice round even hole have not worked very well.

    I like the second plan Patrik. I'll offer these two comments;
    • you only need a Ash Pit if your engine are going to burn coal.
    • I would move the cattle pens to the other side of the track. You don't have to model the back fence, you can have it in your aisle.

    Tnx guys!

    Have been working on the first section today, the one with the turntable. The measures 5' x 28" and 6" high. Reused som old plywood, will buy new for the other three sections. I will also put a background made of masonite.

    Patrik, the pictures of your previous layout and two buildings look very promising. This should be an interesting travel to follow.

    I like what your are going to be modeling Patrik....I think you have a lot of structures packed into your apace. It will give you a lot of opportunities to add detail to your scenes....I'll be following along...tom

    Thanks guys!

    Andy thank you for your input about the improvements. I have totally reworked the loco facility area now. But I will incorporate your idea about a cross. Will present the new plan later. I have started to work on the benchwork today.

    this is what i thought off



    im not sure if that would start to cramp the track in the space you have. but it gives you an extra loop and means you could if you wanted too leave a few cars by the water/coal and sand units etc just an idea feel free to hit me with a stick and say "no down boy" hehe
