Back from Timonium GSMTS and ready to test and figure out my control panel for the yard
Excited to see what I can do with the Berrett Hill Touch Toggles. Will need another 8 pack to complete the whole panel, maybe even an 8 and a 4 pack
Another area that I am working on, both for operation reasons and for photography, is the yard and engine service area. Still have some final pieces to add to the concrete coaling tower, as well as definite weathering. This is the first of several structures to be completed for that area as well as track and signaling
Also working on Sanding tower, water tower and stanchions, small sheds, as well as the switches and trackwork.
As a photographer, I am starting to look at sections of the in progress layout to work up into completed photographs of scenes, looking to do this in different weather scenarios, time of day, etc. I will put up several in the next few posts and then later I’ll recall them and the finished photographs.
Using several kinds of lighting including woodland scenics Just Plug, strips of long reel leds
as well as some 12-16 volt incandescent Veissmann gas lamps.
Rigging bus bars and Just Plug light hub to a couple of mini plugs [added later) so the access section can be removed if needed with little trouble.
Finishing the highway underpass leading out of town. I added led lighting and safety railings, as I have made the sidewalks higher above the road surface.
Here the railings have been added and some random trash added. (might add more later)
View from road under the bridge showing lights, railing and a poster on the wall
Will add a wall surface from sidewalk to the Road before installing the underpass
Excited to get started hooking up and installing DCC and sound decoder etc after receiving my package from Tony’s Train Exchange, with great help and guidance from Erik at Tony’s, and thank you KEVAN and ERIN.
