Our new station, to be inserted into the Circuit, will be based on an LCDR example.
The buildings should closely follow those pictured by Paul W at Lenham, Kent but set in the early 1950s.
It has taken time to prepare the boards and track plan to make sure they fit precisely in to the existing circuit. Paul W has done a superb job on the carpentry, providing three self supporting sections .
The track plan was prepared using Templot (twice!) and most of it has been glued to the cork base so far in place.
Hopefully this will be completed soon and we will be calling on you to join in the track laying.
The aim is to assemble all of the track during our sessions at Badlesmere so that e veryone can join in.
We have the plans and lots of pictures of the station and will start the buildings under Roger’s guidance at our sessions,again as a cooperative exercise.
Once the track is fully laid and tested, we start on the platforms and ancillary items.
Don’t be put off if you feel you may not have the right skills to join in as we learn as we go along by sharing our knowledge.
This should keep many of us busy for a while!
Do ask to look at the plans for the original LCDR scheme on which the project is based.
