Near Disaster !

Every now and again something unexpected goes wrong !!! In this case the PVA / Water for the ballast had found a joint in the MDF. Which caused the edges on both sides of the joint to swell.

The joint runs back to just behind the points which resulted in them lifting, all the track work was on the same level, not any more !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Luckily every thing had risen evenly which means stock can no longer unexpectedly roll out of the spurs :) everything runs well over it and its quite a gradual change.

 

So it staying as it is.

 

In general though the ballasting has gone well.

Sorry to hear that John, I know how it feels with these little shocks! Fortunately it doesn't look as if it affects the overall appearance.

 

I am very impressed not only with how fast you work, but also with your ability to pick out those few key features that makes something look right and real (eg the drain). I know you'll probably be detailing this further, but even as it is now it looks near-complete.
