It looks like this might be a track building weekend – as we’ve had two quick updates on what look like quite a bit of work.

Richard is making good progress on a 2mm FS scissors crossover on a slight curve – you can see the critical geometry in the V and K crossings is nearly complete.

Meanwhile Steve has been busy building N gauge track for this rather impressive fiddle yard entrance for his home layout, including one scissor crossing installed with another to be completed. It took a little fettling once in place but Dapol A3s and A4s can make it through the scissor (12 inch radius) consistently without problems now.
