This rambling blog is about building a couple of simple layouts in HO, the available space is rather small but the prototype was not built on the grand scale, most rural stations were merely a curved loop and a siding, which is easy to replicate.

The bridge of size
One of the problems with a continuous layout is access, it is either up or under, neither is viable so a lifting section is the best option.
Even this has issues that need resolving, accuracy of the device being paramount, so I obtained the services of a local cabinetmaker for a very reasonable cost. The other problem is alignment, here I used best quality 75mm hinges with removable pins.
