Centre Peninsula - Benchwork Extension...

It was mentioned a little while ago that the track work on the centre peninsula near the siding & spur that leads into the freight terminal was a bit to close to the edge.  Well it was very close so yesterday I decided to add an extension to this section to fix the problem...

The section adds another 78mm (3") to the benchwork...




The extension is a single piece of 90mm x 35mm pine, and uses small 100mm x 45mm blocks behind to add the extra depth.  This is all screwed to the existing benchwork.


The same finished height has been achieved in the same method as the existing benchwork on the JL&T.  17mm plywood (5 ply) topped with 10mm plaster/drywall and 3mm cork sheet.  However on this section the cork will be left off as it will be a raised rock cut from the the right side (entering the sidings) through to the road.

This will help stop any wayward trains from taking an extremely long & costly drop to the ground below...


The front of all the benchwork will have a masonite or similar fascia installed at a later date.
