I built this layout in a totally different shed to my SFRSD as I wanted to try something different. I guess this primarily came about from meeting Bill with his wonderful Sn3 RR which must have touched a nerve.
One of the things I wanted to do is try something different hence the curved corners using off-cuts of Laminex curved to a 12 inch radius and glued in place with contact adhesive. John F a good friend helped me paint the top half of the room sky blue and with a lot of the turnout wiring by using push /pulls onto slide switches instead of Tortoise motors.
I designed the fascia to have a shelf so operators had a place to lay car cards whilst switching.
The other really big step was learning to paint all of the scenery and trees on my backdrops which took a while, however I was pleased with the outcome.
I kit bashed two Bachmann Gas Mechanical Locos, weathered a Shay and a Porter and assembled quite a few English freight car kits that turned out okay.
Building this layout was a lot of fun however the operational side did not work as planned so the Lost Creek RR became a fallen flag.
There is no video clips of the layout however I did manage to take quite a few images which I have put together in the video.
Hope you enjoy my journey into Narrow Gauge Railroading as much as I enjoyed building it.
As usual thanks for stopping by and watch out for more videos as I add them to this Blog over coming weeks.
