Going back to the first page, while the layout was still in the planning stage, I mentioned to m8internet that I had a cunning plan in producing my upper storage loops. Now that Zunnan, is one of the most seriously impressive solutions to any railway modelling conundrum I've come across. A little trick is to scale up certain details which would otherwise go unnoticed to make them stand out a bit more.

The only reason I did the HAAs was because I had to try to preserve the TOPS data panels when I repainted the hoppers from Coal Sector livery. An engineering marvel in miniature, and elegant too Like the rest of your work - it's also neatly executed and well presented.
I've induced a couple of derailments on the lower loops, set up by blatting a rake of VGAs into the tightest loop at full pelt so that they derail into vehicles in the outer two loops. By this I mean for example the tunnel mouth lining, which is done using 00 gauge brickwork both as the liner and as the face, both of these details are key to representing a tunnel, so I make them deliberately overscale. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. These include the control panel, storage loop support system using extruded aluminium and the station area. Its honestly not that bad to pick up the mess, the upper trackbed is only 16cm wide so the furthest you have to reach in is 8cm from either side which is about the length of my index finger. For now I'll tease you all with the beginnings of my full length HAA rake in readiness for the Dapol class 58s in Red Stripe livery that are delayed until the end of August. 50mm vertical clearance is more than sufficient, all I need to remember is to remove all of the derailed vehicles rather than to attempt a re-railing of anything thats still on its wheels.Its Aliiiive!The beating heart of the layout is a compact A4 sized control panel, and is now completely wired up for the main running lines. These are the Peco HAAs which I bought for less than you can get the Farish ones in bargain bins! A lot of DPDT switches are involved so that the loops are independantly supplied from either controller and not by the points setting. Also, where possible I'll build them from their major component parts, ie: deck and abutments. Wood is out of the question, its too thick and too much fuss to bend to the required radii at a thickness that would afford any support at all. This helps in that the points can be set into an isolated and occupied loop and a train run in but hits dead track and stops before colliding with the contents.
This makes it easier to handle, work on and paint each piece before the final assembly.Its basically in the representation of certain detail. Plastic is also a complete none starter due to the flexibility of thin materials, so I turned to metal. It is without doubt the most difficult set of wiring that I have undertaken outside of work, compounded mostly by the need to reverse the polarity of the loops because they form reverse curves which means that wiring up the loops has a fit when it comes to colour coding.I'm a telephone engineer and when I lift the lid of this thing even I get confused!
Small detail is all well and good, but from normal viewing distance the human eye can only see so much, so it is that which I concentrate on.


To keep things lightweight I opted for aluminium, and to fix sturdily enough to the ply it would need to fix to the underside of the board so it would have to be an 'L' section. I'll look at photographs of the real thing taken from a distance and base the model on what I can see in the photograph rather than what I can see when I'm standing 3ft away from the real thing. Loose wire ends lead on to not yet laid track, basically the entire steel terminal and the point motors on the scenic section of the main lines which haven't even been bought yet although the switches are fixed in place ready for the big day.Lid shut, much less confusing! When you look closely at my bridges, you notice that they're very simple and lacking in their finer detail, I build them on the typical N Gauge 'broad brushstrokes' idea.
Things like adding in bedstones to support girders and arches, the structure of girders and their abutments where they are supported, the way abutments are often butressed and that girder ends are often bricked in by the buttress etc, nothing more than the key ingredients.
Please note, at 10pm the neighbours do NOT appreciate the use of a 3mm grinding disc to cut dozens of slots into extruded aluminium. I'll have to try and get that sorted out when I wire in the point motors on the upper loops. I wore ear defenders and STILL ended up with ringing in my ears!With several feet of 'L' section so treated, I then drilled out and countersunk each and every lip that had been cut so that I could go into overkill with 10mm long panel screws to fix the aluminium to the ply base.
None of my girders have any rivet detail, but to be honest I don't think they really need it in this scale. Where the rails of the lower level loop pass outside the bounds of the upper loop, I also formed several flat beams which fixed into place allowing me to bridge over the offending rails to fit the supports. These supports are simply formed with 6mm threaded rod, held in place with nuts and washers, which affords extremely fine tuning to the height, and then holds it all in place more than firmly.So, how does the finished product look?And how strong is it?
I'll do a start to finish of the construction of it and show how I do the bedstones and capping. Well, I can push down on the apex of the board between supports and just about deflect it by 1-2mm with almost my full bodyweight.
I'm not quite as obsessive about bridges as Dave (0121modeller) is, but I do baulk when I see a quality exhibition layout whos Wills 'varigirder' bridges float in mid air between the abutments.
Over complicating something can be just as bad as getting the design completely wrong IMHO, the only exception being lattice construction girders.
An added bonus to the design (completely by accident I hasten to add) is that the framework itself forms a barrier to stop derailed trains from falling over the edge too, which is a nice touch as it means I don't have to come up with something else to serve that purpose.
