Layout Progress Photos #2
10 inch tall pipe supports in place
The First Table is in place
1×4 inch boards were used as legs
I took the curves all the way around to the other side and added straight sections to show how much track would be covered by the next two tables.
I decided to fit the curves to the other end of the layout since I was already laying down track elsewhere
I painted the entire area that would be covered by the Upper Level with black paint before I placed the next table. Since most of the area will be hidden by scenery it made sense to paint it black.
The second table is 3×5 feet and was engineered so that a 1×5 foot section in the back can lift out for access.
The straight tracks are not physically connected to the curves. The pins were taken out so that they lift out with table.
Making a bridge was easy! All we needed were two 1×4 inch 5 foot long pices of poplar and some brackets.
The Lackawanna SD70ACe sits on the newly completed bridge span. The track did not sag at all but I will add one or two supports for appearance’s sake.
With all three tables in place I will begin working on as much of the Upper Level as possible before I continue work on the Lower Level
