Welcoming in 2018

So as 2017 draws to a timely end, I thought it would be a fun idea to look back a year and see what I was doing on the layout this time last year.

I had thought that I had the baseboards partially in place and had at least started laying the incline foundations. Turns out I was several months ahead of myself there. I had barely started the incline corridor baseboard. It leaves me surprised at how much I have achieved in the year.

November has quite the month.

November Objectives Recap & Review:
  • Actually fix Percy. Yeah.
    Nope. Just going to buy a new one.
  • Begin building the foundations for the upper level. 95% done. I just need to put in place a central support.
  • Make a start on the double track suspension bridge kit bash. Started. Paused.
    Tools acquired, to be continued.
  • Build the baseboard section around the control panel, extend the track appropriately & sort the final plans

September / October 2017

September recap:
A busy month on the layout which is strange just recently. There has been lots of things going on.

As mentioned previously, I temporarily linked up the two inclines, giving a much longer length of track to play with. Seeing the trains whizz down one side and up the other, has really invigorated me and got the train juices flowing. So this month has been seen a lot of progress and gotten me enthused.

I should really sort out a proper format this, rather than the current waffle... I'll put it on the list of things to do.

So a quick update. In the interests of getting more length of track to play with in place, I linked up the two inclines across the bottom level. So currently, there is ~13m of double track to play with.

I am currently looking at installing the initial 180 degree corners, to bring the track back up the length of the room. I started the first one...
