Brian, he's talking about the template or minimum size needed for an engine to use the rail next to to the loading dock.
It look really near the edge of the docking, so only a small engine or specific wagon could use this portion of the line.

Gabarit = loading gauge (width of stock).

Some very rapid progress Brian. I will have to get a move on!

Thank you all for your help in translation as said "Forums are really useful". Perhaps we should publish an "Anglais-Francais" Model Railway Dictionary?

I should have moved the rails away from the dock to take the pic. I'm actually only going to fix things once the dock is finished and decorated. I'm kind of working from back to front! I only need it to accomodate LGB barrel wagons in any case!

Today I've painted and sealed the entire underside of the module, like Carl, I don't want damp problems distorting things later, particularly as I'm working in a stone outbuilding for the moment.

So whilst that is drying, I've been cutting out profiles for the front of the buildings and checking how they are going to look for scale against the interior images I've sourced...






My biggest problem at the moment is trying to source and Photoshop a suitable backdrop to go behind the turntable to make the rails look as though they disappear between the two adjacent warehoues. I can find plenty of images but getting the scale and perspective right is a nightmare.

Interesting background ideas. Looking forward to see how they come out.
The interiors looks good!

Brian:

It's all looking very good! You may have ideas in mind for rolling stock - but I though I would contribute this pic (which I took in the Champs Elysees at the "Rail Capital" exhibition - I can't remember the year!)

That's a good idea. Idea I've made a seperate forum and thread. But there's no reason why it can't be extended to other languages like Spanish, Dutch and German.

An idea. Set up your own piece of track and photograph it.

The simplest ideas are always the best that's what I'll do!

Todays pics...

Haven't been able to do much for a couple of days but back on the project this afternoon.

Have got round to fixing the track bed 2mm card and providing drop down wires to power the track

for example these holes/wires will supply the main track...


and these to provide a switch to isolate the siding...


I'm using 2.5mm mains cable and soldering direct to the base of the rail...


the resulting wires will be easy to hide in th track ballast...


also has the advantage of being stiff enough to hold the insulating gap without an unsightly LGB insulating joiner...


I repeated the process for the rear tracks and then gave the rails an all over background spray of rust brown...


The rear tracks next to the loading dock will mostly be buried but I'd rather spray them now rather than hand paint the inner surfaces later. I think I'm now set to get on with the detailing work, roadway and foreground structures.

Brian that's progressing mighty well!
You'll have trains running before me.

I'm afraid I've got bogged down with some electro-mechanical complexities but I should do some more this weekend.

A very important question.

What is the distance between track centres from the front 'public' track to your loading dock track? and I presume they are paralell.

They are parallel and the centres are 40.7mm. I can see the way your mind is working Arrow but I wasn't planning to run them to the edges of the module - they are 50mm odd short to allow for some wooden block buffers that I plan to fabricate. I could change this on one or both sides if there was a particular linking idea in mind Laughing

BTW I have in fact run a train for test purposes today bounce

Yes there was a possible idea of linking them either end if mine works out the same.

YES - I can simply produce a replacement track extension to exchange for the buffers at either or both ends.

Carl you need to let Daniel know which way you want ours to mate at Chatellerault! I can accomodate either end!

Brian, have a look at my thread...

http://www.cgtrains.com/t1033p30-momi-module-normand#13612

Another important question:

What colour did you paint your track...yes I know it's brown but what paint did you use?

It's Marabu Do-it Colorspray brun fonce (dark brown) silk-matt 150ml spray

I bought it from our local Cultura store in Angouleme

They're a national chain, I couldn't see this particular product on their website CULTURA
which is a shame as it was on sale at our local.

I'll respond to your other idea on the "Normand" thread.
