Hi everyone, Thought I would start to document the building of my N scale layout, Brynderwyn. It is a fiction European country using a combination of Swiss and German locomotives and rolling stock. The name is an odd one, as it is a Welsh word (my wife is Welsh), and is a town in New Zealand (my home country) and includes my late Father in Laws name - Derwyn, who was an Arduino genius - a source I wish I was able to tap into now! The base board is "Kaiserstuhl" made by Noch, a preformed plastic base with some basic grass and paint. The track is over two layers with a gradual incline at the back (though a couple of engines struggle without the traction tires). I managed to pick this up second hand from the swiss version of Ebay, complete with the lower level of track and switches, a transformer and several locomotives. My first step was to remove all the track as in some parts as the glue had not stuck correctly. One thing I learnt very quickly was the access within the tunnel areas is near impossible in places, this resulted in several attempts to lay the track and I eventually settled on creating sections of soldered track that I could wiggle into position, glue and then connect to the next section. The track plan didn't quite line up either using the Fleishmann Piccolo track (not my first choice but what was supplied), but nothing a little modification didn't fix. I also installed the turnout motors upside down, so I can hide them later with ballast and scenery.
