Not sure I'd like to be a passenger on it. Talk about a 'circular tour'! :sick2:

Perhaps it's a round trip.


My layout is round the bend !
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

thanks George

I have done a few bits and pieces, ahum, but not really time to update everything

What have we done over tyhe last couple of weeks, well Helix nr 2 is getting shape. 40 metres of track in total, 40 cm up, 5 layers so 2% incline. per layer 2 sections so if needed I can put another 20 trains out of sight. Helix nr 2 is nicely renamed ' Super lifter ' by my buddy Paul :)






This weekend is the Ely show where we will display Horsely Fields, I am really looking forward to see Ben's efforts but Sunday I am planning pending on the missus to connect nr 1 and 2 temporary to do a proper test run, probably I will also do a video

best regards

Woo hoo Maurits, all looking good, I have been missing your updates but pleased to see that you are still progressing.

I suspect there will soon be a shortage of mdf especially if you are planning another helix.

Maybe you should rename the layout Helix and Meadows!

 :D

All the best, George.

Evening

After a very enjoyable day with our club layout Horsely Fields at the Ely railways show I managed to spend also some time in the mans room. both Helixes are temporarily connected and the first 2 trains have done a run.

going to add all sections in the computer tomorrow ( 29 sections to be specific ) and hopefully a proper run with all available trains. 



more to follow

Who needs scenery when you have spectacular helixes to hypnotize you. It will be like sitting in front of a camp fire.... why you just sit quietly and stare no one knows but you just have to do it!
