Inglenook 3 Wyes - 2019

54mm (1:32) scale on H0 tracks, making about 20in gauge. Reached a new (combined) fork beside cannons and wagons, still 18in gauge prototypes but this time on H0 16.5mm gauge. This is the Inglenook / diorama I intend to test and display my models on, which will be of the usual RAR and industrial type.

I3Y - Cut some foam

Had some progress this evening with cutting foam to my new inglenook layout. As you maybe see the plan has evolved a bit. Now it contains 3 Y-switches and the water is more of a waterfront then quay and a small creek is added on the right side.

I3Y - Baby steps

Baby steps today, but in the right direction - forward! Added a bit more grass in the background, painted all sleepers light-gray and begun to paint the rails rusty.
