Landmark Events on Dales Peak during 2016
At the beginning of the year I had just started boarding out the back wall of the shed.
March saw the construction of the workbench…
…and the back wall completely boarded out
The first signs of baseboard construction were seen in April
By May the baseboard construction was well underway…
…and the first piece of track bed was laid.
I also constructed a cheap deck, from old pallets, to give an outdoor working area to the shed
Midyear saw the first train run on ‘Dales Peak’
By July most of the track bed was in place
Track laying and the first turnout installation was happening during August
Landscaping was beginning to appear during September…
…and construction of the bridges began.
The Dales Peak baseboard was finally topped out in November
I finished off the year with the bridge modelling progressing nicely
