The glued-down track and paper surface conceals all the interesting details on the two completed layouts and the shunting test track, but here are a few pics from my early experiments through to a few weeks ago with both road and rail. You can see how they evolved over time, starting with one of IDL's small oval tracks in the first pic.
And for what it is worth, the track and control boards for the new layout arrived this afternoon. Just over 24m of track (the new layout needs about 19-20m), and enough daisy-chained modular section/switching boards for the next 2-3 layouts.
From top left: point control, storage road control, 3 x stop section control, a mix of straights and curves, a different mix with more straights and joiners for the 6' long layout. And of course, my standard photo size yardstick.
Now I have to test them all. Sigh.
That is quite involved, but it's mighty cool! Thanks for the peek behind the curtain. :)
