Good to see you've connected it up to the National Grid but I have to say the electricity pylons up there seem a bit on the small side :hmmm:

The pylons might be small, but we know a good fuse when we see one  :D

Creating the transition pieces above the doors took the best part of a day to shape as per the original from a raw block of Douglas Fir - this forms the lintel & top recess for the doors and also means we could finally put the last timbers onto the roof and get the weatherproof membrane on   :claphappy:



Out of interest, this is what the old piece looked like when I stripped it down

With progress on the home of the PRPS progressing well, I can finally allow my thoughts to wander towards the actual layout.  I have a plan which includes a station on a curve (though I just looked at it and realise I had the wrong units when I was designing out the tight curves!) - anyone got an idea of what the minimum radius should be so that coaches & platforms work in harmony i.e. no big gaps between platform edge/coach to avoid contact? In terms of coach length, with the plans I have for rolling stock (Rule 1 mainly!), the station will see Mk1, 2 & 3 coaches.

Here is a snip of the current arrangement - I can hopefully get the curves back to where I thought I had them i.e. minimum radius of 12"

Blimey, if that's the size of the fuse what type of controller are you using? :goggleeyes:

I'm sure your current arrangement will not work. Someone who might know the necessary radius is Caz @Caz .

I think the controller will be very much in keeping with the one Thomas works for :)
