Fremon30 boards update

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

This afternoon I worked on the first two boards for the modular layout.

image

This is is the first board with the gapmasters been glued in place.

what cannot be clearly seen is that all the tracks and clearances are marked on the board.

The centre track in place.

image

The ┬ásecond track in place. This hasn’t got gap masters at the ends. I will use normal copper clad sleepers.

imageThe third track fitted, that’s one side down. Ply fascia┬ástill to add to this board and the next one.

image

The fourth track is added. The gap between tracks is the maximum loading gauge and is set using a standard on30 loading gauge.

Thats the the fifth and final track added. I have pre drilled holes for each rail 75mm in from each end. This will allow each rail to be connected twice to the DCC bus line fitted to the underneathimage.

To make the rails straight I used a long spirit level.

The second board was then added and the markings carried across. Gapmasters were added to the centre line track.

The he first point was then added and tracks linked up. The centre track is not fitted, just laid into rough position. I will need to order the three way point and may need to build a short extension board for this all to fit.

A good afternoons work. Hopefully I have enough turnouts and track to do the other 2 modules. I will check this one evening this week.
