The Golden Spike.
« on: February 16, 2019, 07:18:55 PM »
'tas been done - I know it's a long time since I said hello but I have been paying attention and reading a lot.

I have worried a long time about a base board having no tools or even transport and after reading this thread last week -- https://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=44261.0 -- (Plywood cutting) Merrylee suggested a ply internal door. (Thankyou :) )

I figured a paste table for support but when the door arrived I figured again lol - I got an outdoor occasional folding table (cheap 'cause it's outta season) and a railway is born.

For now Kato Uni - The railway has no name and I have only seminal ideas what I would like to to but for now I can watch trains go round.

It's a start :)

Have a great weekend everyone.

Laters.

Very nice slow speed running DM.
I know that you have a 4-5 inch gap between track and the front of the board but Iíd definitely recommend some form of protection.
Locomotives do have a habit of diving off when you arenít looking.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Good to see trains running! Well, a loco, anyway!  :thumbsup:

Looks like you've beaten NewportNobby to it this time, PP!

Hope he doesn't call in down your way with the Leyland massive  :uneasy:

Hi Port Perran and Bealman : )  - I'm not very good with words so I'm not gonna clug up this forum.

Today was a great day .. dreaming of a railway and stashing stuff that sat in boxes but couldn't move was frustrating but today something moved without me pushing it lol.

I know it's a bit too close to the edge - am working on it :)

Have a great weekend brothers.

DM. - Dave.

Bit far for us to travel on our BMXs, George.

Good to see trains running but that usually slows up any further progress (I'm going by experience :-[)
