    Dart8118 These arches look as reduce the construction of the embankment due to the height and there was a stair access from street level to the water tower if correct. Hope this helps. ps the arches do not continue through to the other side of the embankment. regards warb

    Scahalane The cutting of styrene on a laser cutter should not be done because of the toxic fumes and possible damage it may do overtime. The unit i have access to is at the expensive end and is a industrial unit and the other problem is the temp that it cuts at. there is no problem cutting acrylics.

    As previously mentioned prior to Autocad/laser cutter the only way of making windows was drawing them with a pencil and cutting them out with a scalpel.Time moved on and i got access to AutoCad which greatly improved the situation for drawing the windows consistently for cutting out by hand which still took forever. Due to the amount of windows on Barrow Street I was able to acquire a laser cutter which speeds up the time of cutting and with greater precision . The time to produce a set of windows has moved from cutting by hand with a scalpel to the time spent drawing with Autocad and how to proceed. Over time you learn that most item we want to produce for your layout is made up of layers and windows are the same and most windows are either two or three layer per window especially for up and down sash windows in older buildings. I have attached the drawings of how windows are drawn in three layers for the makeup of the different type of window(see below) which are drawn in two different colours for the laser cutter. i.e green for the first cut and purple for the last cut.Normally when I start i measure the overall width and height of all the openings and due to small differences with hand cut window opes in the buildings I average the size for each type of window to be made and then proceed to drawing. All the windows on Barrow Street are cut from 320gsm straight cut folders inserts for filing cabinets which are a good quality and the different layers are glued together with 3M spray mount adhesive and when completed are painted and then fitted with 1mm perspex glazing with spray mount.Below I have attached the makeup of two types of windows as set out above and the finnish photos of the finished article. I hope this helps. regards warb

    Just a thank you to all who have commented on barrow street overtime. When I started barrow street the majority of it was done with pencil and using 1.5mm plywood cut only with a stanley knife and or scalpel. As time moved on and with the help of CAD which was a god send even just for the amount of windows required for 40 plus buildings approx.(Just alone for the TCD building in excess of 90 windows). Like all, there is time i had to walk away and come back to do another bit.The main interest for me is the actual figuring out and completing different buildings/layout/parts and how it can be done and more importantly making a representation of a item with modellers licences. Again Thanks warb

    David It all started seeing a photo in Michael H.C Baker book The railways of the republic of ireland 1925 - 1975 of a push pull set passing Grand Canal Street Sidings (photo 1973) which captured a scene and hit a nerve to have a go albeit modern image in the 90's onwards.(photo 1 Michael H.C. Baker) regards warb
