Nice work Steve...It's interesting to me to see how people with a plan and discipline build their layouts  ;D


John


Steve,

You sure are fast!  I never had a plan and probably don't have much discipline. I do have a whole bunch of redo in me.

Frank, I need to finish the bench work up, get it leveled and start the track bed.  I am going to try to use spline roadbed made out of 1/4" Masonite.  If it doesn't work out well then it is Plan B

John and Tom, When you have a plan, you make mistakes along the way and screw things up and then you still have to redo them though.  Maybe not as much though.

Eric thanks for you nice comment.

OK The bench work is complete.  The furniture levelers came today in the mail and I installed them where the longer stem was needed.  I also leveled the top surface and squared up the bench work and I am now ready for the next phase.

Steve,

Progress is looking great. I might just have to take a drive down and see it in person.

I started work on the sub roadbed.  I prefabbed the risers and cleats for the railroad yard as shown in the first picture.  They were then set in place with clamps, leveled and screwed in place with one screw.  The plywood is sitting on the risers and cleats in picture 3.  The next step is to screw the plywood in place check that is level and make final adjustments with the risers and add more screws to hold the riser.

There will be a helix built on the end closes to the camera to get to the lower level.
