The boards are completed at last. They can be seen here sporting an NGF mug :NGF:



Once the boards and legs have been painted over the next three weeks, the next step is to lay out the track bed.
Here's another view

and a view of how the legs are constructed


For those that havent seen, this is the plan (albeit slightly amended since this version was posted)



Cheers

Oi, Tank! When are we going to get that 'envy' button?
If there was ever a case of needing it, this is the time.
This layout is going to be bigger than my bungalow :'(
Kirky - if you can build a railway room for me in the station on the layout, I'll come and be the station master :D

Guys
I'm not doing it all by myself you know!!

This is undoubtedly a club project and we have a few blokes involved.

Cloughie: some of it is painted with only its b*m showing. A bit like that bond girl in Goldfinger.  :o

Hi Guys
A little bit more progress on the layout. We're not too far off finishing the track bed. (Sorry the photo is a bit blurred. Think i'll take me proper camera next time and try and get some better shots.)

The photo is taken from the north end of the layout with the fiddle yard on the left hand side. The Fiddle yard track bed is complete, along with the ramps allowing a move from low level slow line to hgh level fiddle yard and four line section at the south of the layout.
We've begun to stick down some of the plastazote underlay. That's the white stuff you can see on the raised curve in the foreground.
And somewhere on there is me  :NGaugeForum: mug.

Cheers

Hi Kirky,

I'm just about to price up the materials for my new layout so can I ask what thickness plywood you've used for the base and the track bed ?

Hi Bikeracer

The track bed and the base boards are made using 6mm ply. That's a nominal 6mm, in actual fact its about 5.2 mm!
The base boarsds are made using girder construction of 6mm x100mm x 1500mm lengths sandwiched between 20mm thick PAR softwood. You can see more pics and some limited description here;http://www.modelrailforum.com/forums/index.php?automodule=blog&req=showblog&mid=7509. Hope this helps
