The worst job so far is done, marking out and cutting plywood baseboards for the raised section, wood chips & dust everywhere. Now they're all in place, at the right height and level. Today is the first day i've really been able to see just how good a tool Anyrail is as I stuck the trackplan onto the new baseboards and it all fitted perfectly. Below you can start to visualise the south end of the station and the viaducts.

The boards are not screwed down, i'll keep them loose until the track is down in at least the turntable area where access will be more difficult.

More supports will go in over the weekend.

I'm still unsure of whether to go with cork or depron. I've used both in the past. Neither has any real noise benefit over the other. I read on this forum to use a silicone based glue rather than the usual wood glue for sticking everything down as it is a better insulator, time will tell.

This long term plan is now taking shape. Putting the boards down in the storage section will be easy. Then track laying, electrics etc.
