Looks very impressive. What have you made the viaduct out of? Is it 3D printed?

HI T gauge lovers

Whilst now that i am also working from home I can now start to work on this project a lot better.

Please the upto date track formation as this will inprove certain running feactures in that I can have one blue controller for the hole thing.

Track over the Ribblehead Viaduct will be a single lane , so that it is for modern running since the later 80's. :D

Well it has been some tme posting so just letting you all know that all 4 basboards of 1200mm by 900mm have now been fully built and varnished up with all legs installed on them. :lol:

Just got to start to make head way on electrics and top build so that the tracks can be laid.

Also I have re vamped the back curved ends to incorparate two running lines which will curl under the main line and out at the back so that I can have and oppotunity of extending the boards so that I can include Dent Layout which will also be the same lenght as Ribbleshead.

Please see below of new image of track work :D

Still do not know when I will be able to finish this project due to lock down as I do not have space for full layout testing when it advances to that stage of its life. :idea:

Graham

HI T-Gauge people

I have done a mock up of board 1 in set track clicked together roughly to see if the layout will work.

Train sticks and had to nuge it due to set track not asembled on at the last minute.

wow it works, so now continuing with construction of track height and start of planning the big hills which will come off when in transporting to exhibitions.

Lots of work to do before I can start to think of wiring it up . :D

Please see demo link of Ribbleshead and a class 67 EWS 67001 running on it.
