Default O Gauge Layout. Shelby Wood Sidings.

Having decided on a track plan for the sidings, on, Friday, and wanting to get on with things today, I was up a 4am today.
I wanted to crack on with some figures and also to tackle the mind numbing boring, but not as boring as ballasting, job of weathering my sidings.

Just finished for the day so relaxing with a hot cup of Cappuccino and a couple of biscuits.

Nice work, if you paint them all like that, then you will have quite a few more 04:00 hrs starts!

LOL, yes only two turn outs, 2 2nd radius curves and 4 straights! Used an awful lot of paint too

Lovely things. I wouldn't like to see the price of the things! I think I'd be tempted to buy lengths of flexible track and canibalize one length to make the points to bring the costs down a little. Mind you, it depends how many you need. Lovely though. I really like 0 gauge!

They are around fifty pounds each. I have seen a double slip for sale at a 115!

That's an incentive for handmade track if I ever saw one!

Just use a left hand point upside down. Need to get up a good turn of speed to cross it though.
