So the only thing that was glued to the board has already been lifted ready for replacement the platform closest to the edge of the board is being widened. The track will be moved inwards and have more of a sweeping curve entering the station.


Four months in and only two peices of settrack have been laid but it's a start.

You appear to have a nasty kink at the top of that curve - are those two pieces of flex fixed in place? Maybe worth getting some Tracksettas or similar to ease that.

It looks to be one piece of flexi and two pieces of set track but, yes, those joins (if they are joins and not just loose laid) need some looking at

Ah yes, so it does, which tallies with the "two pieces of set track laid", so I presume the flex is just posed, in which case, make sure you avoid a kink like that, but otherwise looks good!

Thanks for the update. I enjoy kit-bashing myself but that kit looks like a big challenge. I wish you all success in turning that into a brewery and look forward to the updates.
