Suburban Terminal Loop.

When initially constructing my bench work I never envisaged building an O scale layout. I was into HO at the time. As a result I’ve had to extend the layout to allow the construction of a terminal loop.

I’ve printed my plan out to scale and laid it on the board to see if it will work. I like it!

Note the waiting shed is HO scale. I will blow this up to O scale eventually.

Point Work

I have to say a big thank you to Greg King for assembling all the point work for my layout.

Point blades being assembled.
Here I’ve started assembling the point work leading to one of the balloon loops. The middle road will be a storage siding at the terminus.

The Plan

I’ve finally made a start on my own O scale layout. My space is very small in the confines of my small shed but I’m hoping to pack as much operational enjoyment in as I can.

I’m going to have to widen the baseboard in a two places to accommodate the balloon loops and this is represented in orange.
I’ve also decided to place the tramway workshops conveniently next to my 3D printer.
