Even More Bench Work

I have been busy building more supports for the other side of the layout and you may notice the supports for the second level have a section sticking out the other side. This will be for a four track staging yard behind the backdrop on the second level that will allow me to stage trains at a height that is easy to work at without having to bend over or reach very far.

I have put the strip for the top facia and too the top right you can see the bracing along the top of the posts to stop them from flexing

My most recent purchases arrived this week in the form of some BLMA 64' reefers my only problem with them is I only got three.

More Benchwork

I have done a little more work on the layout and resisted the temptation while in Brisbane to buy more freight wagons.


In the photo above you can see the various bracing pieces at the staggered joints on the long beam.
