Bairnsdale Station Modules Part 1

Over the last few weeks we have been working on the three modules that make up Bairnsdale.

This picture shows current status with the track in place on two modules, wired up and painted; however the points are not yet operational... more on that another time! Note the blue foam extension on the top right. We still have to add one loop track and the track into the freight gate... still working on the alignments for that!

Here is a photo before we got to this stage. In the foreground is the traverser module, then comes the three Bairnsdale modules. The closest will have the timber siding on the left with crane, and stock yards and fuel siding on the right.

Here is the station area with a mock up of the station. This is to help check that we have enough room... with these and cut outs for the goods shed and freight gate area we found that we don't have enough room. We subsequently added the blue foam extensions!

Here is a shot showing the templates.

And here is the yard through going east towards Nowa Nowa. Every track of the prototype is in there!

Further work on these modules is on hold while I work on the modules leading to Bairnsdale, but now if we like we can shunt Bairnsdale to Nowa Nowa :)
