The "new" room

The layout is now a loop style walk around style. In this basement room (5m x 7m; 16.4' x 23') are the heater and water in a corner.
The staging yard - representing South Jct. as well as International Falls is located just below Westport. The trackplan with the new Westport, like it will be in 2006:

This is the bridge at the door entrance. The bridge is made of plywood and got an aluminium frame. The supports at the left and right module are also made from aluminum profile. There's one 4-wire connection for the track power.

Clearance floor - bridge is about 46'' (118cm).

Here runs a train across Harbor Jct. This train comes along the branch line and changes to the main line up to Westport. Trackwork at the Harbor District is nearly finished.

Today's view!

Westport curve

Here you see the first train over the bridge. The other picture shows a train from Third Street District to Westport. This connection was the last track to be laid!


But the sharp curve from Third Street District to Plywood District / Harbor District couldn't be replaced. Radius 59 cm (23.23'')

"big" curve

These two pictures are linked to a larger view, click on them.

Now, with the "new" Plywood District I've replaced this curve with a new curve with trestle, but nearly the old radius, this time 61 cm (24.02'').


The room as of Aug. 9, 2007. untidy as usual.
