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.

Hardboard in place

Benchwork and backdropPosted by lennart Sat, January 30, 2010 20:34:10

The 3 mm hardboard (Masonite) backdrop is in place, and the screw holes have been spackled.

I have serious thoughts about building a spline roadbed, cutting splines from the left-overs from the Masonite backdrop board. I have not tried splines before, but it looks really cool. Smooth curves and easements more or less by themself.
