Hi all,

 

Well as the title says i have built my first 2mmFS point using Easitrac bits. :D Some of you may be suprised to learn that this is the first handbuilt point that i have done and it will be part of my new 2mmFS layout that i am building.

I did have help from Mick Simpson to keep me pointed in the right direction and on the whole i am please with it. It still needs a couple of finishing touches, like the tiebar, and the sleepers trimming but the wagon rolls through ok.

 

I only have 8 more to build and they are all curved :blink: (as is this one) and in due course i will post the track plan up for you all to see what i am doing.

 

If you have any comments please feel free to post them, as they say every little helps

cheers

Simon

 

ps. i've not forgotten about the wagon challange. I do have a few sat on the work bench, just need to get some paint to finish them :)

Welcome to the club Simon :D

 

Your first turnout and you chose a curved one :O RESPECT!

 

How are you going to do the tiebar - SBSteve has had an interesting debate running on his thread the last few days...might be worth a look.

 

Keep going...

Hi Simon,

 

Welcome to the dark side! I think I took your membership fee when Mick 'persuaded' you to join the 2mm SA at the Darlo exhibition a year or two ago

 

I like the idea of pinning the timbers in place - very useful if you're building the turnout away from the layout.

Very neat. Once you can build your own you can make the trackwork flow like a real railway.
