More work on the layout
« on: December 30, 2014, 12:05:12 PM »
Since winter train season is here I started more work on the layout again.

I filled in around the turntable with PoP



Smoothing out the ground near the engine house...


Working on the rough-in for the Campbell timber tunnel portal....








Ground cover added to the yard/turntable area...






Continuing around with some new terrain base, here's what it looks like before the construction starts...




Some pink foam sheet for a base...


Some risers underneath to give support....


Terrain form added with crumpled newspapers backing up plaster cloth strips....


The small flat area near the tunnel portal will be for a future gas station.....



Not sure yet what I'll add to the 'flat surface' but I have room to grow now.

Quick question. Im interested if your using any No.4 Turnouts on your layout and if the C19 handles them ok with a short train?

I am using FT #4 & #6 turnouts and #4 wyes. My BS K27's and C19 handle them fine,  no problems. I posted some videos on youtube. Do a search for jbrundt.

Thanks for the pics. I really like seeing in-progress shots.

Question: do you use Liquid Nails or a similar adhesive to attach your foam risers to the wood joists? Thanks.
