Progress on my small railway today

Post by artfull dodger » Sun Jun 24, 2018 7:37 pm

Beautiful weather here today, so I have spent the day doing some needed maintance and rehab on my railway. I took the rock water fall fountain out as it got freeze damage last fall when I didn't get it drained and covered in time. Been trying to reseal it from the outside with silicone caulk without success, it still leaked. So I bought some rubber sealer to pour inside the base to seal it up. That is now done and its sitting in my shed out of the weather to cure for a couple days. I then added some more mulch, redid the ballest as some track changes had left it a mess. The turnouts going off to nowhere are where the extension loop I am planning will tie into the exhisting railway. Mike the Aspie.

That's looking really good - only a small space, but you've managed to get in a lot of interest without it looking cramped. Like the extension plans too...

All the best,

Andrew.

Small is beautiful, I lose an hour of operating when I need to clean the track :roll:

With that mulch you could have a sawmill like ge_rik’s… :thumbright:
