Modern image cable trough for OO gauge – #3

I cut all the straight cable trough sections from the fret

This time it is just a few notes on me fitting the OO gauge laser cut cable troughs (from Scale-Replicas.com). Having cut all the straight sections from the fret the next thing to do was clean them up with a needle file. This is just to remove the burr where the pieces were attached to the fret.

With that done I fixed them to a suitable piece of wood with double sided tape for spray painting.

If sections need to be shortened this was easily done with a razor saw.

Once prepared the sections of cable trough were glued into place on the layout with some PVA.
