Having got my current Gn15 layout broadly finished, my thoughts turned to a small diorama/layout. A wander around the forum found the bodge traverser and a plan was laid.
I started with some 6mm mdf left over from some backscenes I was doing for a 00 layout. Length is 21 inches and width is 9 inches. This allows it to fit into a plastic case I found in the shed which I'll use for transport.
The traverser is fitted on top of a ptfe coated "baking liner" which is attached with staples. Staples also provide stops for the traverser in the appropriate positions.
I went with 3 scenic tracks and 2 traverser tracks. Track is Peco O-16.5 track sprayed with red oxide/black/grey sprays
The traverser will be hidden by a flat roofed building based roughly on the two sheds at RNAD Dean hill - the front will have roller shutters similar to this shed : http://www.subbrit.org.uk/sb-sites/sites/d/dean_hill_rnad/index35.shtml
while the sides are based on the engine shed/paint shop : http://www.subbrit.org.uk/sb-sites/site ... ex34.shtml
The building is my usual construction of mounting board reinforced with timber strips.
The windows are 24 pane curved Georgian windows which I've straightened to look like industrial windows.The photo shows the windows held in place with masking tape to see how it looks.
The backstory for the layout is that it is the back end of a workshop, possibly on a military base or an industrial location.
I'm kind of making the layout up as I go along
