Layouts looking great. I'll be very interested in the turntable mods.

Got some tracklaying done today...





...but it came to a halt because of lack of materials...



More to come once some more PL-82s purchased...

... and for the person who posted a question as to how/whether the 'loose' sleepers were used...

Thanks. Glad to see you making steady progress. I have bought plenty of spare sleepers and guessed that was their purpose after seeing so many pictures of layouts under construction with sleeperless track ends.

More tracklaying...




The wagon turntable on the Brewery siding will be modelled in derelict condition - it's only big enough to turn a 9' wb wagon, and all my box vans are 10' wb...

Now this I'm really looking forward to as, some day, when i build Penmayne, I will have to do this, too. (I already have the Peco turntable but that's all.)

Now the turntable is in place, can finish tracklaying...  :)




Just one little bit to tack down, when I find the rest of my styrene sheet so I can pad it up to turntable level...

Now the 'interesting' bit - point motor fitting and wiring up below the baseboard.  :uneasy:

Back to work on the layout after holiday and a hectic time otherwise.

Had to relay a couple of pieces as a bit of work on the back of an envelope said I needed to add a couple more section breaks otherwise I'd have locos moving about the loco depot when I didn't want them to...



You will note the dropper wires awaiting soldering onto the relevant trackwork.

A look at the underside of the board, all the droppers and other cabling that needs to be kept is (not-so-)neatly labelled. The rest will be cut back and some of the wires reused on the new works, particularly the red/black twisted supply wires.


One of the reasons that the original points were not changing properly... one SEEP PM1 with badly corroded operating rod (the other half is stuck in the tie rod of the point that was removed from the top of the baseboard).


A bit of a  :doh: moment... I thought that it was luck that I had 34 tags available on this board - until quite a while after I noticed how many wires are present on the inter-board cable socket...  :dunce:


So a quick call to Railroom Electronics resulted in a couple of these arriving in the post...


1.30am, probably cool enough for me to get the soldering iron hot now... more tomorrow.

Many thanks for the update. Please, keep them coming. I am very impressed by (and envious of) your neat wiring.

Finally got to doing some soldering today...

The dropper wires are all soldered onto the track:

Overall view


The Loco and PW yard area


The end of the run-round loop and Brewery siding


Have removed all the old wiring no longer required from the underside, hacked away clearances for the point motors and repositioned the original socket and tag board for the inter-board umbilical cable. When I've installed the new socket and tag board for the new stuff I'll update you with more loverly photos...

Not seen it come up yet sooo...
I'm really liking the small wagon turntable. How did you make it? Will you be feeding rails into it or will this siding be purely scenic?

It's a Peco OO9 turntable - it's too short to turn 10' WB vans, so it's going to be modelled in a derelict condition, and the track at right angle to the main siding likewise...
