5th July 2020
Along with everyone else, when lockdown was announced we simply stopped meetings at Keen House, and the layouts were left as they were. For Bow Junction, that meant set up in our lower hall, with the track making good progress as shown here:
And here’s the work on the trackwork into the shed
And that it is until today – sat there, silently in the middle of the room gently gathering a fine layer of dust.
You may have seen that work has continued on some of the buildings, but we’re at the stage now where we really need to think about the fiddle yard boards and connecting them to the layout. Work on the baseboards has started at home, and this sequence shows the first support board under construction
Here’s the pivot for the sector plate fixed in place.
Now that lockdown is easing, whilst we can’t yet meet properly at Keen House, we feel able to travel and take some sections of projects home, and today two of us will be at Keen House taking down the layout (safely) to be able to take relevant boards home and connect up the fiddle yard structurally, then start to lay the track.
The next stage is to make the moving part of the sector plate which will be made from a sheet of 12 mm ply. Further details will come when we have completed more work.
If you want to get involved with the exciting project, join today, and if you are already a member get in touch with me, details in The Bulletin.
