Modelling Tip Of The Day – 62

Test Test Test…
Having completed your layout baseboards & laid the track, don’t move on to adding the scenery straight away. Test run trains on your layout for over a couple month period. This will give time for the trackwork to settle etc, & show up any issues should they arise. On my own layout, I test ran it for just over a six month period during a hot & cold weather.
Any adjustments can be easily made to the trackwork without damaging any scenery & scenic work. This will pay off in the long run. It’ll also allow for any changes to be easily made to the trackwork if you change your mind.
