Bank holiday Monday, nothing much to do, so I’ve been completing the track-laying at Grande… Then making some sawdust.
A by-product of this has been some suitable bits of wood for the walls of the loco shed and carriage shed at Grande.
These might look like quite hefty structures at present but when clad in corrugated card they should give the impression of roughly constructed wriggly-tin buildings.
I’m quite pleased with the differing track levels at the end of the line. The carriage shed and main tracks are level with the station but the central siding drops down to enable transshipment of goods such as coal from the broad gauge and the freight shed siding rises to facilitate a cross-platform transfer between the narrow and broad gauges. It’s less than half an inch between the high and low sidings but it will add some relief to the scenery of an otherwise completely flat baseboard.
