Under Track Preperation

Before the track can be laid we need to do some preparation. First we will use a Magnet for uncoupling and these need to be sunk in the baseboard beneath the track. We used a router to cut a recess in the baseboards where the magnets will be used. Also, we cut some slots for the point motor rods. The point motors will be located underneath the baseboard with the point rod protruding from the top surface. It's much easier to cut these before sticking the points down.



The baseboards have now been undercoated. The underside will be left with undercoat but the outside will be painted in a nice colour, TBD…


Catches Fitted

The baseboards are connected together by catches. There are locating pins between the boards for alignment and instead of bolts which are time consuming and difficult to get at, we are using a catch either side of the two boards.


Assembly Finished

Assembly of the baseboards has been completed.


Baseboard Assembly

We started to assemble the first baseboard with Glue and the supplied screws. Each piece was firmly held together with clamps before the screws were added. At each stage a square was used to make sure each joint was at right-angles.


The glue we used for construction was xx.
