Workshop – Track

A stock of brass rail from the LGB & G Scale club has meant I will need to solve some track building issues and get on with the task of laying out stage 2 of the SC&MR...
Components for the first piece of track. Sleepers are cut to length from 9x9mm moulding then drilled, 7 at a time, in the jig. 15mm brass escutcheon pins are used to spike the rail. The copper block has a gauge guide ground into it to set and check the gauge.
Half the required sleepers are spiked in place for this first piece. The gauge was good and rollingstock ran smoothly.
The pins are bent over using heavy metal pinchers.
