Following on from the last update I thought i'd share a quite post showing how we've been dealing with board joints using copper sleepers and brass chairs.
The sleepers aren't cut yet as I need to get it all gauged properly beforehand to cut exactly on the correct diagonal. The rail is precut as that is cut perpendicular to the rail direction. When the sleepers are cut i'll solder some brass strip across the joint for now to retain gauge until the sleepers are epoxied down, normal stretches of track use PVA.
The view also shows the ply replacement sleepers to which the rail is soldered giving us our droppers, there are a couple more to fit yet in this section.
I really should tidy up the workbench before I need to get the full curve on it for some painting!
