Good idea. Haven't thought of that. Still don't think it would of helped, as the unit was lifting off the rails!Old 97 said:You should have tried.
All those legos on top would have given you some traction on the rails!
I want to thank you guys for taking interest in helping me and looking at the way the layout is going. As you requested, here are the progress photos from today. Haven't been able to get down there for two days before do to the university and how much I do on the weekend depends on how much homework I get tommorrow. Better not be too bad on the first day and a Friday!
#1 Measuring with Legos the rough height, looks like 7pieces tall.
#2 Bringing out the Legos in old cookie jars. You can see how big Lego track is compared to HO!
#3 Putting up the first building, the station parkade. I know that an actual station is probably needed, but in our moden world parking seems to be everything. In the forefront are the diesel shop tracks, followed by the museum monument track and the yard tracks.
#4 Moving it around I think this spot works best. The track that goes through should work great as a platofmr for short 3-5car passenger trains. On the other side of the "square", a more conventional long platform will still be available.
