HI

Yes all Track is set track till the two middle boards of when it flys over the viaduct as a dingle track Post 1980's , so that I can run one train in either direction on same track which will get the folks confuesed, but really I am just extending the Auto Track from T-Gauge in order to do so.
Just got some scenery stuff today as shop was open , so will be getting on with that side of things.

Will post more updates when I can but not good at taking photos , so may use the film link and send to youtube when I have got the chance to do so.

Keep well.
PS Layout is going to be 16 by 3 foot.
:D

HI Girls and Guys

Just tokeep you upto date.
I have now stripped off all straight set trackfor that I can now have the flexi track on as that works better for smooth running and also not as many sections to join which can be the weak spot in set track.

Please see pics below
ps most before I stripped out the set track. :D

regards
Graham

I must admit to being VERY impressed by your new layout, and an unusual subject as well. You have done a great job of your 3D design and printing. Is it your own 3D printer and what type?

I am really struggling trying to learn 3D, my stroke damaged brain learns new things so slowly.

All the very best with your future work.

David

HI David

My printer is a Wanhao Duplicator 9 300-300, Using Lightwave 11.5 for my modeling and Wanhao Cura for the slicing.
I have still have got 3 boards to do with two Ribblehaed Viaduct and the last board will consist of Ribblehaed Station with Quarry. :D

All 3d parts are drawn then to scale down as I like to scale at 1 by 1 then sent as STL to the printer. :shock:
Still working on scenic part as it is still on basic mode, until I have all boardfs to same dagree, then I will proceed to finishing stages . Plus lots of wiring to do. :D

Well off now.
Take care all

Regards
Graham
