Starting to look as I had planned.

Looking really good! I really like the lighting on your island platform canopy. I’m hoping to do this on my layout. Was it relatively easy to put together?
 

best regards,

 

Jeremy

Hi Jeremy, relatively easy as I designed it in to the construction. There is a slot at each side of the underside of the canopy to accommodate self adhesive LED strip. After this is fitted the finishing layer has slots the same width as 2 LED's and covers the strip between each pair. The exposed LED's are covered with a diffuser. The LED strip has to be cut at as per instructions - so this influenced the length - and 2 wires dropped at each side to connect under the baseboard.

 

It is 3D printed but would be straightforward to construct from card / balsa / plasticard - these are the components -

This was my reference photo for the design -

Different bit of experimentation/progress. One of the time consuming tasks at an exhibition is loading and unloading stock at the beginning and end. It also results is quite a bit of handling and some fairly inevitable damage to details.

 

To resolve this, I am adding a cassette storage system for complete trains. The idea is the cassettes are the same length as the traverser - which obviously is the train length limit.  A pair of hinged brackets have been added to the back of the layout and cunningly designed to hold a cassette lined up with road one of the traverser and plugged in with a couple of fly leads.

 

The cassettes are dimensioned to be a neat fit with closed cell foam liners to the sides and high enough to accept the loco with catenary raised. Some gentle trials show the train cannot derail and seems stable while in the cassette. The cassettes will fit 4 wide by 3 deep in a really useful Christmas tree box for transporting.

 

Proof of concept / pototype being tested shown but going to go ahead and fully complete this as its working a dream. and if all is well - make another 11 - well not a lot else to do really...... Ahhh - the material for the replacement pelmet for the lighting rigs has just been delivered!

I did a smaller version using plastic conduit for my Allegra and it worked well. I only didn’t expand it as the stacking in a hired van was based around a certain size crate and changing all the crates didn’t make sense when the one off cassette fitted on the fy in the van.

That is a remarkable layout. Just fantastic work.

 

I still have a long way to go on my RhB scenery. In fact, I've barely even started it, having only completed one end of a loop that just happens to run very close to DB tracks that were completed.

 

RhB will be the upper level track above the Re/420 pictured. That is the dual gauge line.

Special delivery today - the 20:19 special from Bemo arriving at Neuburg, maybe 6 months late but very welcome none the less. Will get a test run over the weekend.

After granting your right to use their logos on the station signage I hope you sent them a few photos of your modeling skills.
