I have done 0 since…1952. Three rail, but while in the Navy (70’s) I started HiRailing them…better detail, paint and graphics.
I started this pike 30+ years ago, small basement, then enlarged the basement for the dirt for the outdoor railroad…wall out…and the basement pike sat for 20 years.
Four or so years ago, I decided to make it run again…so I did. Expanded benchwork into the “new” section, laid track (GarGraves) and switches, tore out the old yard, made it an industrial section with a reverse loop…month and a half ago I tore out my buddy’s NP line, 33’X13", and ended up with close to 500 feet of really nice GarGraves, and 51 switches.
I am replacing some of my really old track, and switches, and putting a new double main around the outside of the “new” section, plus a double-ended yard, the turntable benchwork is in, waiting to raise the 3/4" ply 1/4" to match the rest.
Hopefully this month I will have the stuff down and can install all the under bench Tenshodo type machines.
I had ONE All-Trol, needed three, been out of production for over 25 years…and I ended up with two more, so things are looking up.
