It has been over six months since the last post – apologies fore that. Progress has been made in that time, but as much as anything I kept forgetting to take photos.
The framework for the baseboards is now complete, and with the addition of diagonal struts on the legs, the layout is now feeling pretty sturdy.
We have boards down for most of the lower level now, as you can see in this image.
The only bits remaining are the short sections unto the fiddle yard at each end and the section crossing the dropped board. Current thinking is that we should put the bridge in place now, so we can build around that.
With that in place, tracklaying for the lower level will commence, with the upper level boards done once that is satisfactory.
