Bristol Barrow Road - Testing a part rebuilt double slip

I am continuing the debugging of the track. Following the test of the turnouts from the Up main line into the engine shed with the 3F - shown in the previous videos - testing with my Hornby Black 5 showed that all was not well with the double slip. The Black 5 had an annoying habit of mounting the crossing V at the coaler end of the slip. This double slip was the first 'complicated' piece of track I ever built and has only recently come into full operational use. If you look closely at the slip you will see evidence of a partial rebuild of the slip - new  solder - as I re -aligned the far crossing 'V', wing rails, closure rails etc at that end of the slip. The Black 5 now runs through without falling off - result :) .

Well done Robin, good to see it going cleanly through the slip now.

Nice bit of trackwork there Robin! It does look rather swish! 

 

Best wishes,

Robin.

Must say, your header photo looks most realistic. I take it the steam and smoke effects have been Photoshopped in?
