Re: Variant of the Carl Arendt SAP Line

Today saw the basic structure finished (no door / windows yet) and temporary fitment. A slight modification was needed to the wood strip above the control panel (15mm or so had to go) but that was it. Held in place with spring clamps it looks like this: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4703/4017688793...

For no really good reason it has been a while since I've posted in here, and there has been some progress made.

Nowt done for a while due to work etc, but finally some progress today.

Re: Variant of the Carl Arendt SAP Line

Wiring finally finis :D . Trains have run, and it mostly all works. Next to make the small locomotive to bring the skips from the offstage mine and take the loaded flat cars to the (also offstage) warehouse. So far it consists of these parts: https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4570/38662570171_4d4e44c22...
