Painting of White Mountains and Panel Upgrades

Work has continued on the main mountain range with the club completing the painting of the first mountain. We used heavily diluted tempura paints and India ink to stain the plaster of Paris. Scenery details such as moss will be added soon. Click the before and after photos below to see the full versions. Details of this work can be found in our Project Gallery.


We are also in the process of replacing the original switch panels that were installed on the layout. The new panels are look a lot sharper and are easier to use and maintain. Light indicators showing which track is clear are added. As a panel is being replaced the club also replaces all the older momentary contact switch machines with newer Tortoise motors.
