Need to work on making my images smaller!
Last item for this update is that I have now received the track for Helston and have started laying it out. Having been working with modern OS maps available on-line and good old Google maps and street view, earlier this week I was faced with a challenge. Looking at pictures of the station building from the road and looking towards Praze, it did not appear that Station Road continued as it does now, there was a wall that appeared to be in the way and far too close to be Church Hill, which is what Station Road has always connected to in my memory for the past 40 years. Well to my joy a little more on line snooping brought me to copies of old OS maps that were surveyed in the 1940's and 1950"s. Bingo, now not old did I have a good scale map that actually showed the tracks and general lay out for the station. I also saw that Station Road was a dead-end, with just a small area probably for parking etc. just past the station building. Needless to say that although I printed out the on-line version I have ordered the high resolution downloadable version that should be a lot easier to work with and will at some point be framed to display in the model room (once I get one. Pic below shows the start of determining where the lines will go with the relevant OS map in the lower left.
Will not be fixing the track for a while as I wrestle with which point motor I want to go with...
