Could you not incorporate a scenic break with a photo of springs branch and the surrounding area!? Worth a thought

Now that I'm done printing plans, for now, on my large format printer. I have been planning to do some backscenes to see how they turn out.
The printer is an HP T120 and was got as a Christmas present a couple of years ago and has more than paid for itself when compared to having a local print shop print out the plan, especially as it has been revised at least 6 times. It will do photo quality stuff, but I don't want to think about the price of the ink!

Hi John

Just found your layout "on the other channel". Looks like a giant and very very interesting project. I will be following along and when I get a quiet moment I will read it through from page1.

All the best
Dave

So it's getting very exciting, well I'm excited.

I have finished laying track and testing the 4 track lifting section. I'm less than 6 pieces of flextrack away from having the Up and Down Fast Mainline done, which means I'll have a continuous run and I might even do some videos.

Here's the lifting section.

Hinges



At this end I forgot to securely fix the two boards together so the first track I laid had to be shuffled sideways to get it to line up properly, this was a fairly slow job as it was all soldered down, and it wasn't until I cut the track that everything went sideways.



Here's the whole thing



And with the hand of God.

John P

Trust me. It really isn't. It's more like a swan, you don't want to see what's happening beneath the surface.
