Good Afternoon All After 40 years I have finally started on building my long promised model railway in my retirement. They say you are never too old to start something and I am really enjoying it. I have a problem! IS there such a beast around as a Lima track conversion chart or can anybody point me in the direction of same? If I try Miss Google anymore I shall go insane. I know- it all depends on what you type as a question!!! All help shall be most gratefully received. My thanks to all who can help Gerry
I have finally started work on the new layout, maybe it was because of Patricks Day :cheers:maybe it was the end of the drought, anyway apart from listening to U Tube clips of Sharon Shannon most of Sunday was spent framing and setting up baseboards, I had already set up the board for the backscene at after Christmas. [attachment=:name] Having got so far I threw down some ply on top of the framing to get a feel for the first stage of the layout. I looked initially at Kiltimagh compact and family connections, but Tubbercurry with the line curving away towards Sligo looks tempting. The trackbed will be supported on risers above the main basebord framing with the line curving away on a low embankment posssibly across bogland towards a bridge with low hills in the background. The Railcar is basically standing at the platform the goods on the main line with the goods yard in the middle distance behind the loco. I had a play with Templot next stage is to do a rough sketch of the layout and transfer it to Templot. Things are looking up I have been promised a 3 Point track gauge & I have ordered some chairs from C&L John
