The mill is looking spot on!


Thanks Eric

Track has been laid and tested.
At the end of the “Farms” loop an LGB R1 point with loose blades has been installed, at the “Mill” loop end an Aristocraft point that has lost its throw mechanism will be used.

Testing revealed that the locos that run on this line will push through the R1 points and set them with no issue, testing for the Aristcraft will follow. This configuration forces the trains to go around the loops in one direction on the first run and in the opposite direction on the second run.
Points Farm Loop

The track has been laid on shade cloth which will allow water drainage and prevent the ballast from falling through the holes in the cable tray.

Work on the Mill Loop and precinct will continue once this has stopped producing tomatoes (one plant that grew out of the compost put under the mill area support).
