Keeping on track

Track laid around the first radius of Level 1

I’ve reached a point now, in the construction of Dales Peak model railway, where my attention is focused on laying track. There are three main stages to this: laying the trackbed, laying the track and wiring. I’ve done a bit of the first two this week. The trackbed has been laid on both the Level 1 and Level 2 radii. Also, the track has been laid on the Level 1 radius.

The next piece to go down will be the turnout for Greenwater Wharf, on Level 1. It’s at this point that the wiring will begin and things start to get a bit more complicated.
