At Doncaster toy and train fair last December I picked up very cheaply an O gauge point built using copper clad sleepers and soldered on rails. There was some damage and sleepers missing but I already had some copperclad sleeper strip in stock so I knew it would be easy to repair. Anyway here is before. And after. I have soldered new sleepers in and also re-soldered some of the joints that were loose. The first builder for some reason put in a short section of stock rail and then fitted a very short piece of rail to make up the difference, I had to do the same but with a stronger fitment. The ends of the rails are just long enough for connectors but I have some plastic joiners that look like bolted fish plates from C&L so I will use those when I eventually lay it, I have a new layout planned for when Thaxham is finished, watch this space..........
