Still working on Camford Junction

The Camford Junction group was hard at work on Camford Junction again last night. Progress is slow, but it is progress, nevertheless.

There was much discussion and head-scratching trying to work out the best shapes for baseboards for the curved ends of the fiddle yard that will allow for the 4 tracks, with a minimum radius of 36 inches, and with the tracks crossing baseboard joints as close to right angles as possible. We also want to provide a few inches of straight track at the joins to the straight baseboards at the front and rear of the layout, and increase the spacing of the tracks to allow for overhang of long coaches and wagons.

Meanwhile, droppers were being added, and connected together on baseboards 3 and 4:

And I pressed on with joining up droppers with relays and frog switches for the TMD area on baseboard 2:
