I started to glue the cork down at 12.00pm for the fiddle yard and need to glue another two or three full sheets to finish the fiddle yard off,but am waiting for the 4 i just put down for the glue to dry and while that happens i am working on the other side and laying track upto the 6x4 baseboard.

Then when the glue has dried on the fiddle yard side i will start laying the track there and lay the half pieces of cork aswell for the fiddle yard but i will work up to the 6x4 board,as i will lay that part tomorrow afternoon and hope to have all the lower level done by friday or saturday.

For now i have just layed the flexi track out for the fiddle yard till tomorrow as i need to fit a piece of ply where the tracks run over the brick wall so that needs tobe done before i can pin the track down,i've taken three pics to show the size of the fiddle yard and i will take pics of the rest of the layout when it is cleaner as i have track and allsorts all over the layout at the moment.

Heres the two pics of the fiddle yard.

Well i have pinned down the two mainlines in the fiddle yard and the two tracks on the leftside of the fiddle yard and leaving a 1mm gap between each rail of the flexi track for track expansion,i need to glue the other cork down before i can pin the other tracks down on the right side of the fiddle yard.

Plus i have connected the inner loop so i can run a loco round as i got bored just sitting there and was nice to see a loco running again,i was hoping to cut the other baseboard so i could fit it but it started snowing so that never happened so i will have to wait till it is dry enough to do it.

I finally got the last baseboard cut into two sections and i have fitted one of the small sections with the last part of the incline fixed to it but needs connecting to the rest of the incline to complete it,the light switch has been move to under the layout so i can turn the lights on/off better and now the return incline can be put in place when i get round to doing it now the light switch ain't there.

Tomorrow i will be fitting the other small baseboard on the far side of the layout and i will finish of the fiddle yard aswell and i hope to start working on the upper level for the station,as i can't fit the peco point motors to the hornby points as i need to find i tube with the right outside Dia as the lugs on the points are smaller than the holes on the push rods on the point motor brackets.

Plus at the end of april i will be spending around £300 on goodies for my layout,photos will follow sometime in april as my brother has taken his digi cam back and i am going away for bank holiday on the 13th and i'll be back on the 17th so it could be then or before the 13th but depends when i can get the camera back.
