Having built some locos and stock I think it's about time I built a layout for them to run on hence "Ashwood End" is being created.
A layout needs track (obviously) for the locos and stock to run on, so, i spent a couple of afternoons last week knocking up a couple of turnouts.
I used the traditional copper clad sleepers type of construction using scrap Peco code 75 flat bottomed rail except for the right hand point where I used bull head rail for the switch blades.
I was a bit cheeky though because I down loaded some H0/00 point templates from the Peco web site, printed them out and used them as a guide to building, adjusting the size and spacing of the sleepers accordingly. Bit of a cheat really but it works!
These are the first narrow gauge points I have made and I'm quite happy with them. Stock seems to run through ok with no wobbles or derailments so that will do for me!
Only another 4 points of various types left to do so got some work for the next week or two!
