So a while back I posted that I’d made the first of the new boards for my Oakamoor layout. Extending it from the former exhibition layout in to a fixture in the loft. And since there is a need for new OO topic posts, I thought it best to document the work as it progresses. Some may be quick and some may take a while, but I will post when I can. Right. The idea is to extend two of the siding and one part of the loop to become the new approach lines (which is more prototypical working of the real location in the 1980’s) I’ll explain more with the photos. Clearing back the old scenery where the board meets. So looking the other way, three out of the 4 lines will run in to a loop and then down to single track. These three will make use of a single slip and a left hand for now. The forth line seen in the earlier photo will become the new through line to become part of a roundy roundy layout. These are just some trial track layings tonensure clearence for stock etc before I start cutting and laying. The points will controlled by standard peco point motors, but i need to sit and have a long think about track feeds as I’m DCC and want to have all the straights live due to sound and lights. Test placing for the single slip. Looking back in to the “yard”.. the buffer stops will stay in place for now until the track is in a more usable state. When you have a 10 year old shunting he may get carried away.
