And all the track is down, and the joints soldered. I have to admit, that laying PECO code 80 is really rather easy, compared to code 55 and even easier than hand laid track. Next job, wiring, then a coat of track colour before ballasting. I’m hoping to get it operational before next Sunday’s ESNG meeting. I’ve also got a few structures coming by post to complete the scene. I have to decide how to hide the hinges. A bridge would be one option, but having read about Elmstead Woods tunnel, in SE London, recently, a short, shallow removeable tunnel might work. This tunnel was built at the insistence of the landowner, who didn’t want an SECR cutting through his land, and in places there was only 4′ of soil over the tunnel.
And how about this for a prototype to model. Shaker Heights interurban, with a turn-round loop on the main line. An N-club module, perhaps?
