Spaghetti Anyone?

A Gooey Bowl of Rail


I have finished off the point hinging on this section of trackwork, all that is left is to cut some gaps and it’s ready to install!

  1. Now that is spaghetti we can all admire! Your trackwork is fantastic. I especially love the “easy to see before the second cup of coffee” green throwbars.

    Leep inspiring us!

  2. G’Day Tim,

    Well, you’ve come a long way from the Port Kelsey.
    I was a little sad when it was disassembled.

    But watching the Bronx Terminal grow under your skillful hands has been a pleasure & inspiration.

    I have learned a lot from your innovations & have put those skills to other uses as well.

    The journey over the last five years has been great & I’m glad I tagged along.

  3. Tim,

    Thanks for the insight you give us on the Bronx Terminal. I have followed along for some time now. I am curious about the track leading to the points. If I remember correctly you referred to this as the engine house lead. What is the story on this and how are you going to make this operational. If you have covered this before I apologize. I am really enjoying this series!
