So you also built this;
? I guess it's in the corner because it wasn't up to your standards but I find it impressively built.

Very impressive benchwork Martin, I can already see what the scenes are going to look like and it looks like it's going to be a great addition to the railroad.

Well Bob, been shoving this around the WS for 15 years now, and there's no market for clocks over here anymore. Youngsters have their phones and other digital stuff..maybe after retirement

Again a love evening woodworking on the 3rd and 4th module in the WS, already build the frame for the 5th because I thought there was a small mistake in the curve to the to be build peninsula..so a small change in the trackplan but this will give me more space to model a small quarry in the corner...an overall view of the 2 modules..



view from the loop..



and coming from the peninsula...



still some minor woodworking to do before putting the track back in and wire them.
After that a few testruns to get the bugs out and the scenery part can begin
Designed in a way I can bring them to shows, with 2 loops added they almost provide continious running. One of the spurs into the mine will be tunneled for this purpose, but I think I close it up like an abandoned mine when they are part of my layout..

Very cool bones!!! I'm sure they will get flesh soon.

Is this

your electric service panel?
Are these fuses? So the building is older than the electrification?

No Bob done straight after the building was done in '85, using fuses (the old melting ones) was very common in that days and my parents try to build with a low budget. Lot of them because the WS has 380 / 400V for the machines. Every phase has it's own fuse of 10 / 16A

Nice job on the benchwork Marty....looking forward to
the outcome. Will you use collapsible legs or at
least detachable legs for ease of transportation?
I been lurking, following along......
