Modbury - 2mm Finescale (Brunel's Baulk Road)


Experiments in Point Rodding (2)

Posted by Ian Smith , in Signalling, Trackwork 19 April 2015 - * * * * * · 1,079 views

Following on from the last instalment, I have finally got around to getting some of the rodding in place on the layout. This is of the round variety, with stools (or stands) at no more than 6'0" (12mm) centres.

The stools (on their bases) were superglued in place alongside the track using a straightish length of 0.25mm nickel silver wire as a guide to g...

One of these above-board items is the "Point Dependent Ground Disc Signal" associated with the catch point at the exit to the goods...

Below is the diagram that I have come up with. Hopefully it is a realistic representation of what the GWR would have provided for my Edwardian modelling period of c. 1906.

All being well others who are better informed than myself will be able to p...
