Why didn't you put the foam roadbed down before you fell, then you would not have had your lovely scar  :doh:. Seriously though, I hope things are not serious.  :beers:

Hi Lawrence, not offended at all and I'd have to have been pretty thin skinned to have been  :P

Started on the road bed for the layout and it's going quite well though I'm not happy about the curve at what would be the north end of the layout.  It seems a bit sharp though it's still greater than the minimum radius set track.  Maybe anyone else can make a sensible comment?

I've not started on the rear part of the layout as I'm undecided about just doing a sweeping "S" curve in a S&C setting or a pair of passing loops in a more industrial setting.

Sorry about the sideways pictures.  I didn't notice before posting, so I hope you don't get neck ache looking at the pictures  :D :D :D

The end curve does seem to be quite sharp :hmmm:
Signal box looks like the one out of the Farish 'Cumbrian Mountain Express' train pack?

Yes to both and I really wasn't happy with the curve which I have since redone and eased it out.  It's still sharper than I would have liked but better than before.  I will post pictures tomorrow.

Eased the curve at what would be the north (right) end and did a series of curves at the back, so the layout will have scenery on both sides.

The trains will look great snaking round these reverse curves.

All the best.

Yep, love the sweeping curves. As others say, goods trains will look really good.

 :helpneededsign:

Started track laying on my Ais Gill layout and I'm gluing the Peco Codes 55 finescale track down with PVA but I have a question to ask the group. Should I solder the track to the rail joiners on the curves for better electrical conductivity along with droppers. I'm a little wary about soldering and I'm using Peco rail joiners with droppers already soldered to them which is a little expensive, but works for me as my soldering is a little like my wood butchery skills, sadly lacking. Any hints or tips would be helpful.

I'll have to bow to the more experienced here as my baseboards are sundeala which easily accepts track pins. I always try to avoid joins in curves but sometimes it's not possible. I, too, use the pre soldered fishplates and those, along with a few track pins, keep my track curves in place. When I get round to ballasting I'm sure they'll be more secure, too.
