Modelling the E&N in HO Scale in my basement

October 23, 2010

Spent a bit of time today going through the turnout needs for the layout. As in getting a substantial amount of sticker shock at how much I’m needing to spend to get the stuff to build the 68 turnouts in the layout. Thankfully it’s still nowhere near what it would cost if I bought them, but still…I think I’m going to order just what’s necessary now to build the skeletons of the turnouts and then the QuickSticks later.

Of course, this isn’t including the massive amount of flextrack needing to be acquired to connect the turnouts or the parts needed to actually control the turnouts (and the polarity of the frog) themselves.

Still waiting for the ladder, chop saw and friends to help out with getting the workbench installed and the partition wall built…All in due time I guess.
