Be careful Globibahn Kenobi. You, of all people, should be resisting the Dark Side.


We still see good in you though so I, for one, will give you a chance.


Can't really comment on the plan as I don't know much about yard layouts.

Don't neglect your MAIN layout though  :no:

Cheers weave  :beers:

I agree with Weave.
We have seen how you like to get stuck into things but please don't let it be at the expense of Globibahn. :no:

Lol point taken :thumbsup:. I can feel the balance of the force - HO and N Gauge, the dark and the light!

Luckily Obi Wan is keeping me in check so I don't stray to the dark  :D

Creating the tiny stairs for my faux - station underpass. It's a good bit narrower than the prototype, owing to the contracted platform sizes. Just one of those compromises!



The photo reminds me a bit of the final scene in Croc Dundee!  :D

Ok on second thoughts. I can get slightly wider stairs into the subway if I first make a box out of very thin plasticard, build the (wider) stairs in and then drop the boxes into their slots in the platform.

Here's a pic showing the old stairs in the new boxes and the extra mm or so of stair width it allows.

And here's the little entrance module. I do lose the brick texture from the sides of the walls using this method, but I think the extra width makes it worth it.



And the prototype..

@Globibahn  Is everything glued into place yet? If not, you could use some brick paper to line the walls and then insert the steps. Brick paper will have negligible thickness. Just a thought.

Yes, what @dannyboy said: use brick paper for the sides.

That's a interesting idea - unfortunately it's all glued in already! Thanks for suggestion!  :thumbsup:

Well if you are really careful, you could take a bit of brick paper and a scalpel blade and cut the paper to fit round the steps .... maybe not.  :). How about a bit of reddish paint on the 'walls'?

No need to struggle trying to cut the brick paper to match the steps. Look at your prototype photo, there is a black line down the side.  You simply need to paint the steps and a bit of black edge first, then cut the brick paper as a right angled triangle and glue in place.

I think I have an idea, let me play... :hmmm:
