Wimblehurst Road

Been awhile since I posted a thing on the layout.

Unfortunately had to pull out of the Pevensey Show as life has conspired against me namely lost of job and family illness.

However I have taken the opportunity to relay some of the track and also the point to the long siding which packed up.

As an inherited layout so to speak I have no idea of what wire goes where so also requiring the layout and replacing the Hoffman point motors with Cobalt ones.

Both at Uckfield and Beckenham found that operating from the front was not practical as you always need 3 people to operate so also building a central control panel to operate from behind.

Also considering replacing the 2 end boards – they are odd sizes, very heavy and a pig to transport, so 2 x 2’x1′ boards might be the order of the day instead. Might increase the width to 1’6″ so there is room for stock storage should I go down the traverser root?
