Postby gbtrains » Fri Nov 17, 2017 9:47 pm

I have just printed out the basic concept on all three bridges of the Conway bridges and may decide to do the castle in 3d print as well.
Lets hope I can do this layout.
I will you posted.

Hi Doug
Just started ,but I am sure that I can build the Conway castle in 3d.
Hopefully I can have the station on as well ,so quite a wierd layout shape then as the railway wraps around the from the bridge to the back of the castle then into the station.

May need some of your 3d houses I guess.

Will keep you all upto date.

Looking good. It is a shame the Lilliput Lane's model of Conwy Castle is about 1:600 scale, or it would make the next part a lot easier!

Hi there
Made a start on the model in 3d modeller LWO but finding it difficult but like most things it will come to me.
I have got a flat plan of the castle in a scale, so using that as a starting point.
Need to get light now for the road bridge and start on the how I am going to build the layout.

still in this gauge its where to place your layouts (the same old questions).

Will keep you all posted.
ps not fully done the paiting on the bridges and not placed trackwork in the railway bridge which I will do by using a thin sheet of plastic and gluing my track on it , then slide it inside both sections.

Regards
Graham

Graham, sorry to be the purveyor of sod's law, have you considered derailments in the rail bridge?
Even the best laid plans and track have this happen usually when you don't want it.

Hi there

"Dam". thanks for that .did not think for that event, but could easrly cut the tops off or make it in drop out sections.

Thank you for asking about that, as you see it is always best just to post on what you have as at least I have not yet placed and glued (close shave there then-LOL). :D

Will keep you posted on what I will do about the derailment event.

ps any views on how I should re make the rail bridge then?

Best Regards
Graham

Hi there

up date on the derailment event in the railway bridge.

A new machine has been discoverd by my wife, it is called the K.N.D.R.A. this machine will push the whole train out from either end of the entrances.

please pictures below to understand what is the K.N.D.R.A.

Better to sort out the potential problems before the construction starts. :D
I must admit I would have cheated and had the top section removable- also as an aid to track cleaning.
