It turned out all right
The "something" being my first DIY track in any scale or gauge. Not for me a simple turnout, lets build a crossover
Thanks to those who gave advice on the 2mm VAG and to all involved in the "Track" book http://www.2mm.org.u...ucts/trackbook/
Finished, still on the work board (two layers of 5mm foam board):
I attached the sleepers to a sheet of OHP film with a minimum of double sided tape. After assembly the film was peeled off carefully.
A cruel close up before cleaning:
As an experiment I made some wing rails as separate pieces, some as extensions of the switches, isolated with a piercing saw after assembly. The latter produces better results, at least in my hands:
On a plastic chopping board for cleaning. The residual stickyness holds it in place and allows for a reasonably vigorous scrub with CiF:
So, how do you clean track that is built in-situ, on a non-waterproof surface, too big to get under the tap?
The finished item, just waiting sleeper gapping, tie bars and operating unit. The sleepers are a bit uneven, but I'm well pleased with the trackwork and a test wagon runs through in all directions
Go on, have a go yourself!
