Project 16 - Up Sidings

The void beneath Misterton baseboards is where we store our Thornycroft Sidings layout, which has been away recently for exhibition and photography. The temporary vacant space gave opportunity to install Misterton Up Sidings since clear access is needed beneath the baseboards to connect a number of drop wires from tracks that span the modular baseboards.

The Goods Shed (reused from the previous layout) sits in a loop so that shunting engines can move wagons to/from either end efficiently.

There is just one piece of track left to lay and that is another siding that comes off the three way turnout beyond the shed. I'll leave that until later.

There is such variety in things to do in this hobby that when one task becomes boring or tedious (like track laying using my method) it can be set aside to start the next, which being somewhat different in content and skill requirements makes for a refreshing change. With most of the track now laid there is a lot of scenic work that can commence.
