Marking time a bit with this post. I’ve spent the last couple of days completing the control panel. All the switches, buttons, and the controllers themselves have been mounted on the panel, and the panel recessed in the baseboard. As ever, it could be a little neater in places, but it looks like it will work.
I think that I will next get the wiring onto the back of the panel, then it will be back to trackwork.
But later today, first wires added to the panel, and a Gaugemaster transformer wired to a plug glued to the transformer casing.
For those of you who worry about rail size (code) and profile, here’s a chart showing all the rail types in use on the GWR in 1908. It covers most options!
And a fine shot of a Southern H15 leaving Salisbury Tunnel – scene of a recent rail crash and an interesting salvage operation to get one of the units out of the tunnel. Notable, too, are the crimson liveried LSWR coaches at the head of the train, in front of some green coaches.
Meanwhile, back at ESNG, we are considering whether to start a new project, after the relative success of the N-mod fiddle yard. Possibilities include some more N-mod corner boards or an N-club fiddle yard/end loop. Deliberations should be good for a few weeks…..
