Default The H's & T's branch

Yéééééééééééééééhawwwwwwwww........ .oups,

Hi all,

Ok, 5 minutes ago the H's & T's branch saw it's first testrun, all is well ( except for an older 0-8-0 that stalled on some turnouts (insulfrogs), but that can easely be arranged with putting some sleepers on the tender as well, héhé).
The H's & T's has a bit of Lance Mindheim, "east rail district" plan in it and some of my doing, a runaround and a small service area.
All in all, there are 10 turnouts in it, all insulfrog (peco streamline code 83).
It's DCC, since I fell inlove with dcc sound equiped loco's I could not go around that one, lol.
You'll have to excuse me for the lack of pictures but I have been working under the layout for the past 3 hours and my back feels a bit (beaucoup) knackered, so tomorow afther I have fine tuned the whiring and the soldering, I promisse, I'll take some and post them.
Ok, that's it for now...............see you all soon................;

Jappe

PS, H's & T's stands for Harley's and Trains, but I guess you figured that one out already,lol

Yo' Bro' - H's & T's looks really good - I'm a fan of LM's East Rail District too - just dont have the space to build it
