Nicks workshop mutterings

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

Tinworthy was Tavistowe-the boards

Yesterday a nice, heavy parcel arrived containing all the bits for the three baseboards I had ordered from Tim Horn.

Today I started constructing the smallest (3’ x 2’)board. All the parts fit together very neatly and accurately.

The underneath. I have altered the layout of the diagonal supports to accommodate the point motors.
Here the track templates printed from Templot are tried on the board. The templates for the point work will be printed on thicker card when I start to construct the trackwork.

Now to build the other two boards…..

    Very impressive Nick. It makes one wonder whether it will ever again be worth the effort of scratch building baseboards when such accurate rapid results can be obtained. The wonders of CNC cutting!

    Looks good. Looking forward to further progress.
