Hello all, :wave:

Unfortunately no big changes on the layout, but i hope to get going with the construction very soon, as i finally bought a new airbrush and can start to add some color to the rail and working on ballast.

A second diesel locomotive is arriving at any time, so i can now operate the branch line with only diesel trains, leaving electric locomotives for the mainline.  :thumbsup:

During this time three "helping guides" were made to stand near the Trix Mobile Station:


1) Track plan, with every point with a number:




2) Updated timetable only with passenger trains, just for the fun of it.  :D




3) Small diagram with every move in the station:





As allways, the best part is always to see the designs on paper:





More updates very soon.  :beers:
Next step: search how to build the several layers of scenery, and what to apply/paint to the base before moving to the grass and other green stuff.


 :thumbsup:

Hi Ricardo,

All looks good. Like the timetable. Want to do a similar thing when I'm up and running.

Bit late now and a few too many vinho tintos to take in the station movements but will look again in the morn.

Great stuff and looking forward to more.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Hello, and thank you Weave.  :beers:

The diagram is a bit confusing, i know.  :D
Even for me i must think twice but it is not my main guide for my sessions.
The diagram is very helpful to check "line occupation times" if i want to add another train or operate some extra service, or even check where i can store some wagons at a given time.  ;)

The layout isn't white anymore!  :bounce:

Fleischmann 87231- 212 248-9 by Ricardo Figueiredo, on Flickr

First step completed, with a flat brown color on every area that will receive some decoration on 2 of the 3 modules. The next step is probably the track painting and weathering, a bigger challenge on the main line with concrete sleepers for me.  :hmmm:


On the photo, the second and third v100 are dummies, Minitrix and Fleischmann old references without engines.

Last session of the year, with ICN 1962 and RB departing from station on video:

Because of monetary reasons, i will stick with the Dapol NCAT1, and like i saw in some users continental diorama on RMWeb, the masts will be raised with a 6mm block of evergreen, so before i order some more to DM Toys, i will point all the future catenary masts with the evergreen blocks in the layout
