Model railroad wye wiring,train nyc to garrison ny 2014,n gauge train maintenance 2014 - Plans On 2016

admin 20.12.2014

The most complex piece of track I've seen is a dual gauge crossing through a dual gauge turnout. BK Enterprises, or B&K Enterprises, (if that's still their name), was a custom turnout maker years back. I didn't install sound at the time because I was experimenting but after watching you video, I will look into doing just that. If you are interested, you can check out the construction of Phases I & II in excruciating detail on my website.
The upper level will be built exclusively with 2” extruded foam and light weight techniques.
The lower level of the new Great Western Railway models the main yard and beet factory in Loveland, the smaller beet factory in Windsor and locations in between. The lower level also has a loop of track around the outside of the room including a visible staging yard.
The new upper level represents the agricultural town of Johnstown including a specialized beet factory. The Masonite lower backdrop rests in a notch between the lower Homasote and the wall holding the bottom in place. Supports for the foam panels over the central peninsula backbone (going to the right) will use a completely different method (to be covered later).


My previous layouts tried to represent the GWR fairly well and I found that the closer I got to real life, the more satisfied I was. I lived in the Loveland area for 32 years and have tons of photos of the real thing to work from. Here are the temporary screws holding the panel joint tight as well as a couple of flathead screws below the brackets. Once the temporary panel joint screws were removed, vinyl spackle was smoothed over the various holes and joints.
Now that the lower backdrop is fastened in place, it’s time to begin some special work on the foam itself before it can be put in place. I had an original run AHM Heisler, that I had widened the gauge to On3, and used a Virginia City Models resin kit to convert the boiler to O-scale. Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers. Just not too sure which legs to isolate for a reverser?  Have three Tortoise machines and two DPDT switches to run them. The GWR was started in 1901 and still exists today even though the sugar beet industry is gone. I’ve held a few operating sessions since then with members of the Rogue Valley Model Railroad Club (Medford, OR) to sort out potential track and wiring problems and to get them used to my operating methods.


There are a lot of things to do to the foam before it is ready to be mounted (to be covered next after I actually do the work).
Now that I'm retired with plenty of modeling time available, I striving to do it as well as my abilities permit. In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois). A few minor problems were found and fixed and now I’m ready to tackle Phase III, the upper level. I will document Phase III there also but I thought it would be fun to write about it here first. The Loveland yard with its beet factory is the centerpiece of the layout and is modeled ½ scale size. This is screwed into the last slot of the standard and holds the lower backdrop tight against it.
