Nicks workshop mutterings

Various railway orientated modelling projects in my new workshop/railway room.

Lananta’s first outing

Yesterday I took Lananta to the 3mm Society AGM as a test run of ‘work in progress. This was the first time that the layout was run in exhibition form and it certainly threw up a load of problems which need to be fettled. Not least was problems with the alignment of the carrying cradles for the train cassettes.

Here is the layout ‘dressed’ for the occasion- ;

I really. Should have ironed that drape!! It is attached with Velcro and in addition there is a drape fixed over the top of the layout. This was very successful in preventing extraneous light affecting the scene and made the LED lighting more effective.

On the plus side, I received plenty of encouraging comments about the overall scene from members present.

All in all it was a good test and a lot was learnt about the presentation and operation under show conditions……
