It seems to be taking forever but I've got a bit further with adding cladding over the insulation and the door wall is now almost complete.
I've used some of the short off-cuts of timber cladding on the door which is why the top section are vertical as opposed to the rest. There's insulation behind the door cladding too.
Timber strip beading has been fixed in place along the roof centre line and down the corner edges of the non-door end which improves the appearance. A short section to the left of the door end has been done too. Now do I paint it, stain it or what? I want to make a decision soon because I have some twin slot wall mounted shelving to install above the terminus section and it would be best to paint or whatever first. It will be great to finally have shelves for storage and not have to store everything on the floor!
Hi, hello Tony!
Well, it did get a bit cooler but still too warm for the end of October too much too sunny and too dry.
Which greatly pleases me! 😂
I have now tackled the second turnouts and hope to finish them until next Monday. I never thought it would make it this year.
The substructure is ready and the turnouts, weighted with stones, wait for the two-component adhesive to set.
This control panel has come a long way from the start being on the drawing board, I bought a label machine to print out labels, pure magic, making the panel nice and neat, I be busy now printing out labels for all the bus wire plugs, have printed out labels for the wires coming out of the modules.
Wont need to label the wires coming out of the control panel, friend did ell me how he printing them out, know now, I will reprint out BL1 again to match the rest of he labels.
It is a pity you can't resize the length of the label to waste paper, has a 4 meter roll refill, $6, $39 always wanted one not a bad price, of course you can get more fancy ones , all you need for the layout.
Buying more of the same wire tomorrow, 30 meter roll, hate to think what it will cost for a 100 meter roll.
Once I have finished cutting the rest of the cables, still need to cut cables for the connection of the transformers four of them, will be making a box to fit them in and a four way power plug on top of the remote throttle receivers two and one slide throttle for local operations.
There be a second control panel to switch the points and signals , come later.
Can't wait till I get back into the layout finishing off the last two station modules, and start work on the spiral, need to gain 12 inches to the bridge

Hi Thomas, sad about the rack not fitting your bridge, can you use the track any where else on the layout, home from holiday and it's our turn for the bad weather, the rain hasn't let up since we came home on Sunday, since the rain started on Thursday we have had 80mm's more closer to the coast.
Good for the grass, I bought a label machine to do the labels for the wires and control panel , be nice and neat, always wanted one , buying more wire tomorrow to finish wiring the control panel.
Keep the good work up I am interested in what you have planned for the corner section, a mountain of some kind, could put in a working cable car , what I am thinking of doing.
