Very rapid progress David. I like your solution re the can't bend down below the baseboard problem. Very smart. :thumbsup: Might have to flatter you by copying that. :beers:

All looks good to me although I might have drilled some holes in the cross braces to carry wiring :hmmm:
Congrats on negotiating the extra space with 'The Domestic Authorities'.

There is no need for that. Foam core is very soft when the outer layer of paper is breached so a screwdriver will simply punch a hole for wiring. See developments as I go along.

I have finally finished laying all of the track and wiring it up. Read my blog for a full discussion of the issues and successes in the process.

Thanks. My friend Mark is a great painter. See his painting of the Flying Scotsman

I have a nasty suspicion that I am going to have to take the railway down and store it for a while. My 92 year old mother-in-law is in need of the room. I am planning a 6' x 1'6" station to fiddle yard for the interregnum.

Hi David,

Just come across this thread and think, as I had a large glass of sherry rather than my usual small one  :D, I'll just say hi and look through properly tomorrow.

Thanks for posting and looking forward to the read in the morn.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Sadly, having got this far, I have had to stop and take everything down. Sadly, for another reason, as my Mother-in-law, who is 92 and blind, is finally in bad enough health for us to step in and become carers for her. This means that she is moving into what has been, up to now, my railway room.

For more details of this and prospects for the future for Pennvale, check out the blog at http://www.pennvaleblog.co.uk
