I'll probably be using Alan Gibson EM ones. Have you had any problems with these on BGS bridge rail?

I use P4 standards. I just tried a few of my EM wagons on a piece of rail, as I thought there might be a problem. I haven't bought any EM wheels for several decades, so couldn't be sure what is made now. The Hornby wagon is a modern one though!

 

I know you have reasons for using EM, but it's worth considering P4 to avoid problems.

I'd send you a bit try, if I hadn't run out and need to order some more. The odd bit I tried is needed for check rails, that I need to get what I've laid running.

Baseboard construction has been progressing.

The legs need to be done next. Once track work is down then the rest of the boxing in of the baseboards will take place.

You can see the extruded polystyrene clearly, which forms the main strengths of each baseboard and the framing at the front that will support the sea/harbouring and shipping.

And most of the mess is not mine. I just hijacked the SHMRC club room to put it together today to avoid little fingers belonging to the children getting glue everywhere. Also Teddy (a precocious 3) doesn't like the noise of Daddy's 'DIY' - he has yet connected this noise with model trains which are a favourite of his!

Reference the mess. We were putting Hope under Dinmore up in its new position in one of the club rooms which meant we had to disturb the work benches and their power supplies, which will be repositioned this Thursday.

The progress has been slight but important - the home for the layout.

I have started building the timber supports which will carry the layout when it is at home rather than out and about.

The club's chop saw made light work of the (rather heavyweights) scrap timber and now, as you can see, the right hand scenic board is in place.

I've now run out of suitable timber and drill battery...

iPhones etc remember which way up they were when a photo was taken – and display accordingly. Try holding the phone the other way up next time...

More progress. The supports for the other baseboard has been screwed to the wall and a start made on the integral legs for exhibition use.
