Still waiting for the piers,platforms and overhead station which should arrive tomorrow but this is basically how it will look.

need to shuffle the piers and viaduct tack around a bit but roughly in place

The final bits and bobs arrived during the week so I could get the track laid and powered.

As I m likely to change my mind at the drop of a hat I decided to spot glue the track with hot glue on the underside rather than glue it all down permenantly,hot glue breaks away pretty easy so wo nt damage the track.

I glued the ground track in place then shuffled the viaduct track into a position where most of the piers were in the right place.

Small station in place with 2 tracks and I may add another siding in on the other side as a small freight station.79A44368-35AB-487A-8C85-660256E95A2B.thumb.jpeg.869e715a7dca07556a362d07fa263ffe.jpeg

Gents,

can anyone tell me the overall length of the kato 10-1522 E353 4 car basic set please?

want to make sure it will fit in my station before I order it.

thanks,

Cheers mate,very grateful for that.

I ve got about 62cms in total which I thought would be enough๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€

Yeah, I can't guarantee it tho. But the 1/1 scale trains is 2x 21m + 2x 20m long, which would result in ca. 55cm in 1/150 scale ๐Ÿ™‚

To be honest I ve got one of the cheap kato 103โ€™s and thereโ€™s loads of room left so it should be ok.

if it does nt quite fit my plan B is I can extend it by 37mm but if thatโ€™s still not enough Iโ€™ll just run it as a 3 car trainย 

I know they should be a lot longer but the layout is only small so will look more in proportion.

thanks again buddy for taking the time to look๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€

I just measured it. The length of the Kato 10-1522 E353 4 car basic set is 56 cm.

56cm was my guess. The rule of thumb I use is, one full length car is 140mm

Over the weekend I did some work to the plaza area and platform.Needed a bit of messing about to get the height right.

not sure the paving on the platform is quite right so may just paint it grey.Will add a roof to it at some point.

Work on my latest layout moves at a more steady pace these days since I allowed serotta1972,aka my very good friend Junior, talk me into getting some Rc cars.๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘thanks junior,I should have listened to you two years ago when you first mentioned it!๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘

Anyway,back to the layout.

buildings more or less in position but only loosely laid.Roadway and some paving and walling done.The area at the back LH side will be a small freight yard.

Nextย job is to lay the remaining ground cover and decide where should be gravel or grass.Fit remaining fences and walls.

I need the point for the freight yard siding and a 3rd controller for the viaduct track and the crossover for the two running tracks.

All will be done over the next month hopefully.

I've been steadily working on the little layout for my Kato Greenmover LEX. The base is foamboard covered with styrene sheets. Last night I painted it a mix of black and grey with more black than I typically do. In the background are a motley collection of buildings, many of which will receive work.

With the arrival of the remaining track and controller I was able to compete the track work and get all 3 trains running.

short video showing progress to date.

still lots to do but need some more groundcover.
