Tom,

Here's one way that shows how it's done on the POC. I use a nominal height of 40" but the benchwork can be built to about any height you wish. If this is what you had in mind feel free to ask if you have any questions. Also the links provided in the other posts above are of the same RR and will give a lot of details.

Thanks so much! This thread is great, keep sharing photos, links, and experiences.

I checked out the Lone Peek and Western good stuff.

The POC RR pdf is huge. My system keeps stalling at about 10 MEG around page 55. What I've seen so far seems very well done. Are there links to download it in smaller chunks?




Here's a few links you might find interesting documenting one area of the RR....

Hi Richard
Thank you for breaking it into several documents. It really helped. (Ive been away from computer for a few weeks)Your system looks great.

Actually it's Steve Conkle you have to thank for the PDF breakdown. While it's my RR all the work done to collect and offer my posts to everyone free of charge was due to the hard work of Steve. Either way I'm glad they were of help to you.

Matt,

The rainy weather should start to let up hopefully in the next couple of weeks. I still have more structures and scenicking to do at "Bandon" and a couple of bridge/trestles to do but the main priority for May is to complete the benchwork to Port Orford; the end of the line. That'll be about another 60-70 feet. I'll have to order some more switches but I think I have enough track otherwise.

I'm also planning on a few changes at Coos Bay on the original sections of the RR as well as some cosmetic repairs and maybe a reroof job on the roundhouse which is overdue. My temporary fix has proven to be just that, temporary. hehe!

All told I've got about 3 seasons worth of work I'd like to get done this year. We'll see.

How's the Slate Creek doing? Any big projects going on?
