I started today in doing a mock-up of how the spiral will sit to the track plan, it wasn't easy with the module, so I moved the module out the way and changed a couple of curved around, wow worked out even better.
Again I had trouble trying to get the cursor onto the bottom right hand corner of the first pic, the only way to fix it is put the last pic on first will try that next post.
Top pic I thought I take through the trees, looks good, of course the spiral deck be above the balcony hand rails, plants being a good back drop and the train on the spial as well, be pure awesome can't wait for the special day.
Next pic I shifted the module out the way and wow the spiral sat perfectly, also shifted it down 6 inches as well, on the corner module be five tracks, not sure yet on the amount of points and they be mostly the large Pecko radius points
Lucky last pic the first set up, wasn't easy having to use pieces of old leg posts, will be much easier after I have levelled the module this week.
The pic above is the better one, I have a level jig to work out the grade to quarter inch a foot 24 feet in length rising 7 inches to the bridge.
Tomorrow I be doing a mock-up pont how the points will go to the plan on the spiral, then I will paint the module, one final module to build..
I got stuck into a point and track muck-up to the track plan, has turned out well be awesome when the the trains are running through the points, be a bottle neck though merging onto a single track main line, I love single track running with another passing loop on the front of the layout, will keep the chief controller on his toes.
The points on that module I will motorise and working signals, be a distance from the main controller, depends on what throttles I will first use, remote I can walk with the train, friends over will need a controller then, sit in a chair controlling a train.
I also decided to join the module up to the gray module to see how the double track lined up perfect, there is two other station to go in between the gray module and a 2ft bridge connecting the the corner module. I don't like to have too many module joined up together, came up the with rail bridge over the road.
Break tomorrow, Wednesday I will level the corner module with the first station module, so
I can paint the module and begin relaying the track and points permanently.
