 :thankyousign: I've built wooden jetties before but never a pleasure pier, so its a 1st for me.  :claphappy:
I'll probably make the pier head support frame from card to the same 'X' design thats between the arches.
Have plenty of cereal box card which when 2 layers are superglued together is surprisingly rigid!  :)
Personal motto: You don't have to be mad to be a modeller, but I find it helps!

Dunno if they had candy floss then! Better ask my friend Google...


:idea: Perhaps tiny bits of pink and white cotton wool on micro rod sticks? :idea:

Update, asked Google. Candy floss machine 1st appeared at the 1904 World Fair.
So possible to have some on my 1910ish layout!  :laugh2:

You could paint some short lengths of Slater's 10 thou." plastic rod in pink with white tips each end for sticks of rock. Not sure if your painting is up to putting the 'E S L I N G' on each end though (backwards at the bottom end, of course)  :laugh3:

Could part of the smallest inter-dental brushes be used to model candy floss? Might be a bit oversized but could be used as a sign on a building.
Just one Pendolino, give it to me, a beautiful train, from Italy

Don't think my eyesight is up to lettering that small!  :laugh:
Might do some rock though...

I think you're all bloody mad but I like it!! :laugh3: :claphappy:

Absolutely!
Got to be to want to model the Edwardian era in N gauge in the first place haven't I?
Nurse! Is it time for my medication?!  :-X

Might have to look into that idea.  :thankyousign: Pengy

No band, not enough room. Only tea rooms on the end of the pier.
Thinking a Punch and Judy show on the beach might be good.
After all, 'That's the way to do it!'.  :D

Nothing to update at the moment.
I am thinking of using the overhead wire to actually power the trams rather than just be for show.
This would make the wiring simpler for the track, being just the return, improve running and be more authentic.
Researching more pier stuff at the moment, mainly for which style to use for the pier head.

That gave me an idea that the larger brushes could be used in the coach washer perhaps?

Could do Dave. I'll have to see if I can pick up some different sized ones cheaply somewhere to measure up.

One advantage of using the overhead as one polarity and the track as the other is that a single track return loop is no longer a problem. Also, as well as having all four wheels picking up, the sprung overhead pole/bow/pantograph helps keep contact through the mild pressure. I did experiment over 30 years ago with a bow collector, the overhead using tinned copper wire which is very easy to solder (being pre-tinned, of course!). It was pretty fine too, though it's best if some tension can be put into it. One possible method there is to actually spring the support poles at the ends.
