Ruthern 7mm Scale O Gauge
Work has been progressing well with the new O gauge project, 'Ruthern' (as in Ruthern Bridge) which is in the Bodmin area. So far the baseboards have been contructed, a plan drawn up and track purchased. We have recently started track laying as can be seen below.
With the track laying completed, work has commenced on wiring the layout up. Point control uses the 'wire in tube' method, with the polarity of the frog being switched by the point switch.
Track work on the main layout has now been completed and wired up. The layout has undergone some scenic work, although this is far from finished. We have also added a 3.6m extension which will depict an industrial scene. Part of this will include working wagon turntables, together with a mechanism to get the wagons on and off them!
