Leandro, the layout is looking great!  Your kids are really doing a great job!  I love the last two photographs!!    I see the right-of-way foreman is really giving that curve the close inspection in the 10th photograph!!!     Did he/she make you do it over?  

Thank you very much for posting the great photographs of your progress!

You must really enjoy watching Enzo build the layout. I recall some of your first photos when he was toddler. Now, he is the track construction foreman. 

Beautiful work on the layout! I especially like "Tool Canyon Pass".

Good to hear from you -

Very nice pictures and layout too! With a crew like you have you can't go wrong. It's great to see the kids involved with the construction.

Hi, Guys !

Update of the last post !

My question ! What steps I should work?

  • Put track bed;
  • Works in power distribution for track and switches;
  • Works in my Bridge 

 

 

I like those steps - roadbed down - then, you may have put holes in roadbed for wiring - therefore, wiring next or do you mean that you are going put ballast (stones) down now and the track is already on the roadbed? If that what you will do next- then connect the wiring first - and then apply the ballast.

I am not sure what you need to do for the bridge- are you speaking of the trestle curve?

Great progress!

Thanks, Mark !

I got the idea of the trestle from our friend Alex Muller ! By OGR 256 !
Yes, The router is fantastic !

yes, indeed! That is a nice trestle!

I prefer the open stringers with the track ties on top - it's a scary look down through the track.

Decks on the stringers are prototypical, so no problem with that - especially after all of that routing.

Carl, I also prefer!
But I made a biggest trestle for both tracks external and internal, so I 'm going to have others small trestle only internal track and therefore I had to made a biggest trestle !

That's some mighty fine woodworking there. That will be beautiful when finished.

Leandro,

You layout is great! I have a similar space build a layout.  Would you please share your track plan and the dimensions of the room and the layout?  

 

Earl

Earl, Thank You !

Yes, It will be a pleasure !

So my space measures 19' x 12 ( 6000cm x 3800cm)

Hi, Guys !

I didn't very satisfied with results of the my trestle ! So I just finish the new project and I would like your comments !

My idea is to create one trestle for external track and  other for internal track, but internal track will be more tall !

I think it would add a lot of interest!  You would have to plan it out, since the trestle bents get wider at the bottom they would need to be staggered.  It seems to me that Jim Barrett did something similar on his layout that he described in several issues of his Backshop column in OGR Magazine 

I would recommend 7 inches or 17.78cm from the lower track railhead to the bottom of the overpass wood.

You can have less if it is not available. Measure the height of the tallest engine or car that you have. That will be the limit. 

Double stacked container cars and auto rack (carrier) cars tend to be the tallest.

I am sorry that I didn't comment on the trestles - I had a loss in the family and the holidays were a bit tough. The result looks really great!
