542 – I have the Wood (for my baseboard)

This is the wood for the baseboard for my model railway! I have it now, and I can start work on building the baseboard. I have a particular person top thank for this, I don’t think they read my blog, but I know someone who does who knows them, and they will pass on my thanks.

All I have to do now is actually start work on constructing the baseboard. Now, I know what to do, I just have to do it. There are some other bits and and pieces that I need, like I need two stands to support the board. I am going to have a look for those, and I need wood glue and screws and clamps, and I need to learn how to use my dremel. So it will be a little while before I start construction. But, that will happen.

It isn’t a very big baseboard, 0.5mx1.5m and it won’t be my main layout. This is what I am calling my Proof of Concept (PoC). This where I can practice the drilling and building and if I mess it up, I won’t be too upset.

Once I have the baseboard set up, I will be able to practice track laying, including points, and I want point motors, and then wiring which is going to be for power and Digital control. I think I will be happy with things once I can get to a point where I can run shunting puzzles, so I’ll need automatic de-couplers as well. There’s a lot of anticipation here. But today’s acquisition is a massive step forward.

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.
