Layout Progress - December 5, 2010

This week was a pretty productive week. It wasn't as productive as I wanted, but I got pretty close to where I thought I would be. Last time I posted, I had a goal of getting the other 2 free standing sections up by this weekend. Well, I got one of two up, but have all the pieces cut for the other one. Earlier this week, I built the support bases for the two sections:

I used the same method I did on the first peninsula I put up, but this time I let the glue take more of a hold before unclamping the flange and web of the L-girders. I then spent the rest of the week building the 15 support posts I would need for the actual benchwork on each of these sections. Tonight, I managed to get one of the sections put together and up. Here's the obligatory photo:

Over the rest of this week, I'll attempt to get the last one up and start on the front bracings as I also cut the joiner pieces for them as well.

Welcome to the my Conrail Model Railroad site. I will document the research, design, construction and operations of my N-scale model railroad based on Conrail's Ft. Wayne Line in Ohio.
