This sunday we’ll get into leveling the layout and joining everything up. Might even clean the track and test that things still go around. That could be a dangerous step though cos we’ll probably play trains and get sweet stuff all done afterwards.
3 sundays done. We’ve now managed to set the modules up again and level them all so they join together at the same height. Subtle small differences can make a bit of a headache when setting up at a show so now we won’t need to carry a box of packers to ensure everything lines up. Have put in power feeds on all the point frogs and now setting about putting in polarity switches so that all points have much better power routing and conductivity. Meanwhile on the ‘new’ bridge modules we have reclaimed several boxes of small trees from another display and started experimenting with recolouring and reshaping. Looks promising. Next sunday (25th) is the BoP area get together in Ngongotaha Rail park, north of Rotorua. If you’re in the area drop in after 10am.
