Today I got time to laser cut the parts for the coal station platforms. Sorry for the lousy photos, but I did not check them before assembling the parts.

First up the top platform





Temporary on top of tower





After assembling the first top platform. I drafted up the remaining smaller platforms and cut them out.



After a little assembly time all platforms for both towers

Hi Dwyane.

AWESOME work on the turntable & roundhouse.

Can you tell me what you used for the turntable girder sides ?
Are they parts of a bridge kit or such like ?

I bought some girder sections, as a kit recently, for turntable sides.
I like what I got, but your sides look pretty cool as well.

All the best.

Cheers.

Si.

Hi Dwayne

Please excuse my ignorance for missing the section of the forum out, this is brilliant. Given me ideas for a future project...lol :P

I did do N gauge many years ago, this was my scale as child but English prototype.

The Laser jet works well for this scale, looks like a must have tool for this scale in these days and standards if you wish to scratch build. I know a lot of work goes into the cad side but the build part must be a lot easier, plus you can make as many runs as you like.

Well be watching this thread :pop:

All the best cheers Dan
