For those of you who have seen the MRJ 200 thread you will see it contains an article about my layout. It was originally intended to include a second article on the laser cut/etched buildings but this has been held over to a forthcoming addition - hopefully MRJ 201. If this is the case it will fit in nicely with this years Scaleforum where I will be demonstrating part of the layout with other members of the Glevum Area group of the S4 Society.
As promised here are some more photos of the shed and workshop with all the exterior and interior walls finished. I will add guttering and drainpipes in due course.
The next major area of work on the shed will be the turntable, associated pit and the 24 turntable roads. The basis for the turntable bridge will be one of the new 4mm 60ft Cowans Sheldon kits from Metalsmiths Ltd although I am not keen on the paxolin used for the girders and other components. Etched replacements will be used.
Operation of the turntable has posed a few questions. As the shed will have a roof aligning track using the 'mark 1 eyeball' is not an option. After much research I have decided to use a stepper motor system from New York Railway Supply. For those interested I recommend visiting www.nyrs.com
