Test and trials


After some work without pictures are Crawford Junction ready for tests and trials in the garage. The first trial was a short work for the switcher to change the loaded hoppers by the elevator to empty ones.

The NW-2 at the junction with the empty hoppers.

Ready, testing the brakes.

Out again. Here in the almost ready landscape on the south section.

Back in the Valley, pushing the cars.

And coupled to the loaded ones.
*¤#*, sorry end of battery in the camera.
Hopefully it will be more pictures from further testruns in the future.

Tracklaying finished

I made a fast decision and used a Peco c55 flextrack instead of the missing Atlas to the elevator track.

I also tested the location and height of the depot but nothing is decided yet.

With addition

A small building for the passengers added

Depot building

The Depot at Crawford Valley will be a kitbashed Walther SF Freight shed. I´m going to add some space for the waiting passengers.

Track laid and almost finished

The trackwork is ready except the elevatortrack. A wiew towards north.

And the opposite direction.

Painting and trackwork

First step today was to glue the base of the elevator to the module and paint where the track will be placed straight on to the plywood

Next thing to do was to shorten the turnouts to allow a narrower trackspace (cc 28mm)

After that feeders where soldered to the turnouts. I have made the habit to feed every single bit of track.

The turnoutpair glued in place.
