Thanks chaps!

I've a church to build and some fir trees to make, probably with Mizzy's help, during the festive break.

So I'll post a few photos over Christmas of these items when I can....

Happy New Year, 2020!

I didn't get any work done on Rhaetia over the festive break, but plans have been afoot.

I ordered some Tomix Tram Track from Plus Daughters, which arrived just before New Year. However, I decided the C103 curves were far too tight for my needs and I'm now waiting for C140 ones. (I've now learned that the C means curve and the 103, is the track radius.) A mate has offered to take the C103s off of my mitts for a tram layout, so I'm left with a quantity of straight track sections, of which more of the same are needed.

I'd ordered some Kato 20-045 adaptor tracks from Train Trax to join the Tomix to the Kato, and these had arrived in the post when I got home from work....

Not a lot to report on Rhaetia recently.

I'm still waiting for the tramway track, but in the meantime, I've built a Faller church kit and purchased some Tomix and Kato buildings for the townscape.

The boards are currently on their sides so I can access the underside for wiring work, and this is proceeding, slowly but surely. I'm going to use the Kato controllers and point switches, to keep it 'plug and play', but some of the point wiring needs to be extended, so some chocolate block connectors and wiring of the same colours will be used for this....

 I finished the wiring on the first of my baseboards today.

I will be using Spiralwrap to protect the loom, as can be seen on part of the cabling.

You can also see the lightweight construction of the half board....
