      Made one final track change, found a Marx switch that didnt cause the E-units to go haywire each time an engine crossed it so, decided to add it it, and give it turnout and go back to the original plan. Afterall I had the OGR door challenge in the back of my mind when I planned this.

      I'll find some other use for the truss bridge.

      Progress:

      Adding the topmost level, thats a old Plasticville TV station kit on it.

      Roadways added at the front, also scultamold, otherwise known as "never-dries", infill around the track.

      More roadway at the side, with a old Plasticville switch tower

      Added some walls around the bascule bridge control house, with Faller building paper facing P.S.latest acquisition

      I missed this earlier. It's looking good. Keep the progress reports coming.

      I just discovered this thread today, enjoyed it a whole bunch. Very cool - that bascule bridge is a real star performer!

      I wonder if there's any news since May 2011, Victor?

      Sadly this got dismantled last year due to space issues. I still have the Tinplate layout, but I still have all the bits and plan to rebuild an expanded version of the Tinplate layout sometime in the near future.
