Model railway - N Scale

Model railway - N Scale

Postby PatrickR » Fri Feb 14, 2014 11:37 am

For those who are not familiar with N scale it is 1:160 in Australia and America and 1:148 in England. I lay all my own track and am always looking to make it look more realistic. As well as trying to make some rolling stock, I am also making my own sleepers, or ties as the Americans call them.Image

The width of the track is 9mm and the rail is attached along the piece joining the sleepers. The sleepers are made using Craftcast in a silicone mould. The gap every four sleepers allows the track to be flexible. The photo shows a piece just out of the mould, and requires some cleaning up, but not much. It will then be painted dark grey (in my case) and then added to the layout. As other moulds are created, I will update this thread. I have been working on the layout for 12 months now and it is about 10% complete.
