Of late, I have been getting on with one of the more boring layout building jobs; that of adding cosmetic rail chairs.
As I wish to retain the flexibility of soldered track construction (basically because I do not trust myself to get it right the first time!), it is necessary to affix cosmetic chairs at each sleeper. I did lesson the task by using part soldered/part chaired plain track but even so I reckon there are three thousand chairs to affix………..
It does, however, make a big difference and the track is now beginning to look real – as you can see below.
I am over half way and so it will soon – which is just as well as filing the chairs ready to lay is wearing my thumbs and fingers out to very sore digits!
Arguably though, chair fixing is a form of procrastination because i must finish the wiring and then confront that turntable again!
