About this blog

This blog is about my current model railroad layout project; The N scale "Summit" layout, which is a freelanced interpretation of the Southern Pacific Tehachapi tunnels and their surroundings. Or at least, that is what it is meant to be. What it will turn out to be is another matter. The banner photo above shows what I want to recreate in N scale.

Telegraph poles

The ground cover is in place, everywhere! To top things off I also added some telegraph poles. These are poles I salvaged from earlier layouts, both from my old Tap Creek layout and the previous incarnation of the Tehachapi.

The old poles had varying number of cross-arms - some had four, some had three and some had two. On this layout I wanted all of them to have the same number of cross-arms, since they will all be along the same stretch of track. I settled for two arms on each pole, as in the banner photo on the top of this page. So I removed some arms from some of the poles, and mounted them on some new poles instead, ending up with a fair amount of two-arm poles.

Here are some photos. Click on a photo to see a larger version.
