Wednesday, April 29, 2020

As brother Thom indicated, I have been messing around with track plan options for the Delaware Central. The original proposed 4'x12' stage one plan was going to take up so much space that I began to rethink just doing the 1st of the 2 rooms. Here is the latest revision. NCE produces an AR10 reverser and circut breaker. This plan would entail using 2 of them. This plan has changed almost every hour for the past 2 days, Will probably change again. Comments or suggestions? Please let me know.

My friend, Thom Radice, wanted me to post some images of the rolling stock that I have been building the past year or so. Here are just a few of them. Hope you enjoy.

I have been playing around with track plans the last few days. I wanted to see what a 30 degree crossing might look like. The following image does not have the level of detail as the previous track plan I posted because now that I am getting the layout space cleared, I am rethinking the entire layout. I have opened the can and the worms are getting everywhere.

Been spending a lot of time in the basement moving the mess around, reorganizing, cleaning, installing an electric line and ceiling lights in preparation for the layout. As I have been doing so, I discovered a Mantua 1860s passenger car and combine that I was detailing a couple of decades ago. While waiting for the stimulus check to arrive so that I can begin finishing the walls, I am finishing up these 2 cars and revamping the track plan. More on the track pan later.
