Fascia work continues

Oh the MDF dust!

Its lucky that I can cut this MDF in the workshop end of the shed and not in the RR room!
I have been busying completing the cutting out of the fascia for the layout.. All 24 sheets of it..!

The fascia is about 95% complete now. I still need to cut the holes for the panels in Plattsburgh and then paint and fit the turnout panels and make the shelves for each town. But as you can see from the pictures most of the work is now completed.

The sections between Whitehall and Willsboro and Willsboro and Plattsburgh are just roughly cut at present as I need to decide the water level for the Lake Champlain sections.. But they are easy enough to do. I also need to clean up some of the joins and the MDF has moved slightly so need to place some support behind the joins so they are flush.

All in all, Im happy with the progress..

See the pictures to get a feel for it now. Then a lick of paint and bring on the next session!..

Come back and visit in a week or so for the next update.

  1. This is really looking good Brendan. I agree MDF dust is awful. Before too long I hope to start with some fascia on my layout. I try to do all my sawing in the front half of the garage with the train room door closed.
