In my earlier thread on the E94 Krokodil, I showed the build of the loco that I did for a friend. But it hasn't ended there. THe next step is to make the railway track itself to place the model on! Then I am going to build a catenary to complete the display. SO, here is the start of the build for the railway track. I found the model at this Dutch website: http://www.schaalbouw.nl/index.html The model comes in 1/45 scale, but I needed it to be 1/38 scale to fit the model loco. The distance between the centres of each wheel as measured across the axel is 43mm, so I scaled the print to make the distance across the rails the same. I cut out the gravel bed from the sheet and attached it to some 8mm foamboard as a base. Two strips of thick card were glued along the sides of this to create a 'hump' along both sides of the track. This baseplate will eventually be attached to a nice piece of hardwood for the display. The sleepers were laminated to 2mm thick card and cut out. I coloured the edges of the sleepers with oil based pastels to match to wood and rust colour of the sleepers and blended it in with my fingers... The 'woodpile' ready for mounting...... Sleepers going on...... Then all the rail clamp plates were laminated to thicker card. The slots that make the clamps themselves were cut in the plates.
