Hi all

Sorry been a bit slack lately on the forum as I have had a few personal issues.
During this time I have been converting the garage to house the layout. The floors have been painted with layers of latex rubber damp proof paint and the walls have had breathable roof felt attached to them as a cold barrier and to help prevent sweating. After the floor was left to dry for a week a sheet of damp proof membrane was laid on the floor followed by 25mm polystyrene and the 18mm 2by8ft tongue & groove chipboard loft flooring (moisture resistant)to create an insulated floating floor.
Next the walls were lined with 25mm polystyrene to act as insulation, this is great and noticed the difference instantly. The walls were then shuttered with stud walling. As can be seen in the pic's the 240v cables have been routed before the plaster board goes on and the wooden wall is to partition the garage into two half's. Most of the plaster board has now been added, but I done my back in so not much has been done the past two weeks, but hope fully will get it finished soon and will then take some more pics.

Nice room Daniel!

Are you accepting reservations for the 2015 travel season yet?

Seriously, looks like it's going to be a great place to create your rail empire.

Please keep us posted!!


Herb

Hate the gubbings and finishing parts.

The plaster boarding and the doors are finished, just need to paper tape the joints and put filler over the plaster board screws, then it's painting and electric's.:bang:

Been busy the Chivers fine line kits are now built and painted they just need weathering and my 4-6-0 is nearly finished and weathered sorry no pic's of the loco.

Below is a picture of a Peco Setrack curved point which I re-timbered with copper clad sleeper strip's or tie's as you guys call them in the US.




Got a few more pictures to post when I get a five minutes. this week.

More pics of the layout.
The foam board has been glued in and parts shaped in places, Some rubber/cork mix track bed has been laid down using Evo contact adhesive (if you don't want to end up high as a kite then use in a well ventilated area) and the track loosely laid down to make sure I'm happy. I think I'm going to put the station on the next board not yet built that will go beyond the bridge and an extra yard lane to go in on the left hand side by the passing loop.
I hope now you can see why I converted the Peco Setrack with narrow gauge sleepers.







Below are pictures of my nearly finished Chivers Fine line kits in the coalmine yard.




Hope you like, any comments are welcome.
