FCMR- How we built my home VR 5" Miniature Railway

Gday Everyone!!!

Paul and I have worked hard on the railway and made some major progress over the past months. It would take ages to upload all this to the blog so I made this video for a recent railway expo. This video outlines how we build the railway to it is now. The only difference is the loop at the station now has tracks and is awaiting points at either end.

I have also ordered a set of point levers and am going to install these. If successfuul I will order more. They will hopefully be linked to signals to enable multidirectional running.

I have also made a video showing run days on the railway. Now I have a decent connection to the internet, I will upload this to YouTube for your entertainment.

Take care,

Huuuuge amount of progress!!

Gday all. We have been working extremely hard on the railway these past few weeks. We currently have 168 metres of track down with only about 20 to go.
Rather than uploading lots of pictures showing the progress of the whole railway ill upload pictures of sections as they have progressed over the past few weeks.
Ill start with the engine shed sidings.
This shows the existing aviary and how the allignment is roughly set out. The points leading into this section are laid into place.

Sleepers and ballast are laid.

Track is now put into place ready for running. Over the coming weeks I hope to insulate and put walls on the aviary (engine shed) meaning I can store trains there when not in use.
Ill post more updates soon!!
Happy modelling.
