    The portals are by N Brass Locos.

    The final phase of portal installation has started. The picture below shows the stock of portals for the curved boards at the north end of the layout. Also visible are the spacers and jig for drilling pilot holes for the dowels. Sods Law has come into play though, two of the portals will have to be replaced with cantilevered versions because they obstruct signals.

    David welcome along! There has been a bit more progress since the last piccies but I decided not to post any more at the moment. More will appear once the spaghetti goes in.

    A couple of shots from last night. The first shows that all the portals are now in place on the front boards. The second shows progress on the curved boards at the south end. Lastly we have a rather fuzzy shot (my fault) of Malcom’s entirely scratchbuilt tensioner for the end of the turn back siding. I’ll try and get a better shot once it’s installed.
  5. Can only echo all comments above. I also assume that “fat fingers” are the cause of the novel concept of “helical hearing” in the email I received
  6. As a retired employee of a industrial gas company I know that sourcing solid CO2 would be difficult as the industry is not at all keen on supplying private individuals following some wholly inappropriate uses. Storage and use probably make more trouble than its worth anyway. David

    A significant milestone in the electrification of Hallside has been reached. All bar one of the portals in the station/junction area have been painted up and installed. Although we’re still not quite half way through fitting the OHLE the complex portals and masts for the junctions, turn back siding and station areas are almost done. In the last picture below the position of the missing portal, which needs to be slightly shortened so as not to foul on the station building is marked by the price of paper. Hopefully more progress piccies soon.

    Paul Thanks for the kind comments. I know it’s early, but if you do make it to the SEC, make yourself known at the layout. David

    More of the masts and portals are now in place although the wires are yet to be added. This encouraged young James to takes some piccies. The Fife circle set is obviously lost since it is seen ascending onto the Cathcart circle!!

    Some progress to show. The Peco masts being installed on the link from the WCML to the Suburban lines and the turn back siding. A lot of “earth works” still to be completed though!

    As I warned earlier progress has been slow. As a plea in mitigation our main portal builder has been preoccupied for several weeks recently after an accident severely curtailed his wife’s mobility. Happily health and mobility are improving. Plan A had been to build and install portals as they were assembled. Plan B has meant that we now have almost all the portals, masts and catenary ready for installation Hopefully we will have sufficient progress to warrant photos soon. D
