So on Friday I was down the shed in the afternoon trying to take some photos for a project. Not sure if it was a success. Saturday morning I made it to the hobby shops looking for something, which no one seemed to have. In the afternoon I spent time on two activities. The first was making up a little cross section of track that I will be using to test options for mounting my infrared detectors on for my level crossing. The other activity was spending some time doing some fencing around a house in 80 Canterbury Street that backs onto the station at Cassino. I also got out a few detail items from my collection to add to the backyard of this locations. Well we needed a clothes line, an outdoor dunny and I had to find a garage to put beside the house. A few trees were found and allowed to grow in the yard. Of course the rubbish bins had to go out the front, the mower was left out the back and a outdoor setting was put in the back yard. A water tank was also added behind one of the sheds. I do have some mailboxes somewhere, I just need to find them to put them on the layout, out the front of the Canterbury Street house.
Now fencing had to go around the house on all 4 sides. The fence besides the track was always there, but never installed, so that was glued down. I needed to build some fences to add around the other three sides of the house. So they are just sitting there at this stage, not permanently installed as yet. I am undecided if concrete car tracks will be installed into the garage.
Also on Saturday afternoon, there was an NMRA Div 1 meeting online that features Luke Towan the fantastic diorama modeller from YouTube fame, then at night there was the NMRA-X presentation. Adam Wuiske gave a great presentation.
Maybe I will get back on track next weekend and try and tidy up a couple of projects that I have on the go.
Sunday was my daughter's 18th birthday party so I was offline for most of the day, except for getting away to post this blog.
