Congratulations   and    celebrations    my little Kiwi Friend.  :)-<   <(:]

It gladens my heart to see and  hear that little 2-8-0 chuffing up the track which has been so expertly and lovingly laid by the

best tracklayers in N.Z.

A beautiful job.

back again  ;D

Now time to lay some rail




Here's my 2-8-0 sitting on the track



I now have 3ft of rail down and it works   :)-< :\- :]: :\- :)-<

I hooked up a DC power pack and run the 2-8-0 up and down the rail and it ran smooth and looks sweet {j} {j} {j}

This is not a good shot but if you look real hard you can see i little glow of light coming from the loco as it run towards the camera


Now I feel like i'm getting somewhere now but as with this project progress is sometimes slow and painful  LOL

more soon

Cheers Warren

Ok guys time for an update

As i said earlier i had to rip up the cork and redo which i did


Then we laid some more ties



Then we started laying some rail when it hit the fan so to speak  :fan: 
The problem was i couldn't push the spikes into the subroadbed which was MDF board >:( >:( :-X :-X :-X

So we decided to use something else for sub road I decided on using pinex so I ripped it up again
I laid some pinex out glued and screw it down


put some more cork down




On went some more ties




i'll break this up a bit

cheers Warren

We have run into a slight problem that requires me to rip up all but one bit of cork and redo the lot.

What happened was misunderstanding with plan. It was drawen in HO not N spacing between mainlines is 50mm which is way to much for N which is supposed to be 30mm.

I'm frustrated at yet another delay but glad to find it now not after laying 100ft of track.

So one step forward two backwards  LOL.

Cheers Warren

Well folks we had a great time over the last couple of days.


I got some rail LAID.  {j} {j}

A whole 2 ft  LOL

Here are some pics







I hope to get power on in next day or so which means we on target for running a train by the new year :\- :\- :\- :rock: :rock:

I did this freehand as most will be ripped up as later on I want to put in a double crossover in this spot.
But in future laying I will use straight edge.

I'm feeling really happy now as I feel the first major achivement has been done.

cheers womblenz
