Michael’s layout – it moves!

Michael and I continued to build his layout on Wednesday.  Well, I did most of it, as I was giving instructions in how to wire it up, and use a soldering iron – and how to melt the plastic on Peco track.  I also found that I’d forgotten to add insulating fishplates at one location, but we managed to extract that piece of track and change fishplates.

And at the end of the session, we had a locomotive running around the main line and into every siding.  Next job, perhaps a little ballasting?

Reading RMweb recently, there was a thread exploring a slightly expanded version of Ian Futer’s ‘Victoria Park.’  I quite like the addition of a central siding between the platform roads.

I recently gave in and bought a cheap copy of the ‘Book of the T9.’  Here are four photos of that long lived and lovely locomotive…
