Paper Model 2

Following on from Paper Model 1, here is a second go around: Paper Model 2 Paper Model 2

The scale is the same, with one square being 50mm.

I’ve re-assesed the size of the concrete oil bunker, using this photo. if I assume the grid visible is 8’x4′ panels, then it appears to be about twice the height of a railway wagon. So the new model is only 500mm tall, which should be much more manageable.

I’ve also dropped the backscene panel on one side, so that the model is viewable from two edges.

Food for thought – it will still be considerably larger than Phoenix Yard, so I need to think about whether it should be possible to split it up for storage. The fact that the pointwork is in the centre of the plan will make this awkward at best.

You can see that on this model I printed off a trackplan from the Templot plan I have. The wagons seem a tight squeeze, so I will need to check the sidings have enough space in them for the 5/3/3 inglenook I want this plan to be.
