418 Model Railway

The Musketier outbound fromPortsmouth, not sure where it was going, but nice seeing it go out.

I’ve looked on a couple of websites that cut wood. Who’d have thought that a basic piece of plywood (9mm 1.25mx0.5m, plus enough 1×1 (25x25mm) wood to edge and provide 4 lateral batons could both be so difficult and expensive to find. Now, I must admit, I’m not really sure what I’m buying, and I haven’t looked locally. Surely, places like Homebase and B&Q are worth looking at – I wonder if there are any other places that I could look.

I can see a trip to local wood emporiums coming on sometime in the near future. I’m not going to spend that much, unless I absolutely have to.

You now know then, how big this, my first layout is going to be. This is because, this layout is going to be a proof of concept. The laying of track, setting points, cabling the track, installing point motors, practicing with Digital Command & Control (DCC). There are many skills that I need to develop, and the whole point of this layout is that I learn from my mistakes.

The baseboard is the starting point. Let’s see how it goes from here.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
