RSR new layout.

Work on the new layout continues. The boards are all but done, albeit with a few corners to be filled in and joins to be levelled up. Once that's done, it can all come down again and I can start laying the track on the bottom level.

In accordance with the recommendations of Site Admin, I shan't post any more images directly to the Forum. Instead, I'll just give the URL of the flickr album (as I did before) and refer to specific images in the text.

A bit more work has been done in filling in gaps and resolving awkward issues, mainly the silly slanting gaps in the platform tracks towards the northern end of the station (decided just last night to see to that). Not much left to do now, I'm grateful to say.

Some of the boards look wide but presumably all are comfortably within reach for (say) track cleaning /maintenance? :)

My boards are up to five-feet wide. However, there is a simple mechanism to rapidly 'place them back' into easy arms-reach. ;)

Thank you for your kind feedback, gentlemen. Work on the baseboards is now *really* all but done; there are two tasks remaining that I know about. ;o) The latest stage of the work was providing for a new double slip on the southern edge of the old layout.

The building of the baseboards is done, except for a couple of small details best left till a later date. Now I can start tidying up and sweeping that floor.

There will be a small hiatus now, as I've been roped in on getting the garden ready for the winter: mowing, pruning, cutting back perennials, sweeping leaves etc and carting it all up to the organic recycling depot. This will probably take the whole weekend.
