A bit more done

Some more work completed.
   
    On Friday last John and I got together and installed some more brackets in the room where the old town of Augusta is situated. John wanted to install some more wall brackets on which gets installed the L Girder for bench work. We started on the wall to the right of Augusta by adding 3 new brackets pre-made by John and having completed those in good time decided to keep going around the wall on the opposite side to Augusta. We then came back and after making some additional L Girder quickly installed that in place.
     John had the desire to include as much of the old SFRSD into his layout as possible and this included the portion that ran on the wall directly behind Guthrie in my layout room that included my scratch built wooden barn and a brass etched windmill. It is mostly only 6 inches wide except where it turned around the end of the wall to meet up with the track in Guthrie. "Do you want to see if this section of the old layout fits this space John" of course was the reply so with brackets in place it was an easy lift and voila it fit almost perfectly. A few cuts with the say to remove a small portion of the rear L Girder to clear the room light switch and you could saw it was almost made for that spot.

     All John needs to do is add some track road bed and a small amount of track to link it with the old town of Udall and that will be that.

Some pics of the days work.











     John has also made good progress with the sub-road bed for the visible staging and turntable and roundhouse that will be added to the left hand side of the old town of Flynn. Pics to follow.

    This is something I built just before the SFRSD was torn down and a new hobby direction that I have started.  My completed M113 complete with engine and interior.


  


 More to come as I start my 1/35 scale journey.

Thanks for stopping by.
Regards to all and happy modeling.
Rod.
