Trackwork Benchwork Finished...

Yesterday I had another full productive day of finishing off the benchwork for the new extension trackwork (staging yard & diesel serving facility) the plywood base is down and secured all that remains is to add the final sub roadbeds of drywall/plaster & cork.

Staging/Classification Yard on the left & Diesel Service Facility on the right...






























The benchwork for the Classification Yard sits above our storage shelves, these will eventually have drop curtains fitted to the underside of the timber frames that overhang the shelves by about 90mm.



The penetration through to the existing L&T Branch area has been completed, and I have installed side guards to the crossover bridge to protect any locos or rolling stock that if derailed in the void would take a long drop to the concrete below.



The Diesel Service Facility area is also finished and the benchwork complete, again there is another penetration through the existing layout this time to the interchange connection that will eventually lead down to staging under the layout on the northern side.



Again this penetration through the new extension framed wall & existing shed wall has a void around 1' (300mm) in width that has been bridged, I also added a side guard incase of derailment stopping that drop down to the concrete floor below.


And looking back from the existing layout to the new Service Facility...



More soon...
