Spital Bridge - Whitby MRCs 7mm Urban BLT

Recommended Posts

Just a quick witter for this update I am afraid, the wiring genius known as Kevin made it this week, just in time to discover that during last weeks testing we had somehow fried the rectifier and discover a Cobalt with a defective microswitch!  But on the bright side, after a lot of fiddling we did get to see his scratch built N10 run on some Gresley suburbans which was well worth it.  And we discovered that the modified Goods Shed does fit in the allocated space and so does the office, so from that perspective it was all good.  It was also quite nice to be able to shunt the yard with the 08 and for it all to behave itself, although its only 2 roads the end on dock really does add some operational interest as it gives a purpose to playing about, along with the cattle/horse/sheep/children dock being in a slightly awkward place to add interest for the operator.

 

The layout will be up again in full next week for more testing and tinkering so this time I will curb my excitement long enough to take a photo or two!

We've had the layout up most weeks recently for testing, although last week we poked at a couple of scenic jobs instead, one was to fit a small bracket to stop the goods shed making a break for freedom off the edge of the layout if someone was a bit too enthusiastic with their shunting, and the other was measuring up the platform and canopies and coming up with a range of options in terms of price and style. 

 

In other news the Warehouse has been finshed to a basic standard for the show - the idea being to get as many identifiable scenic items in place as possible, finshed to a basic standard.  We can work on making them look prettier later, as you can see, the loading platform requires the stones shading for example and the walls need toning down and detailing.20190706_213036.jpg.7ec35d5d9e36803e03dc1133cb1925c8.jpg
