The baseboard that we used to start the our project was a curve test module. After it was built and used to test various radius curves , it was stored above our model train area. Unfortunately, I managed to damage the foam at the end of the module getting it back down. This was because I did not build the module with a protective piece at that end like the other end. Let’s call it lesson learned. At first I did not think it would be much of an issue until I placed the end piece of our module 2 next to the “Slow Trains Down South” module.
As you can see in the pictures, the junction looked terrible and a fix was very much in the need. So to correct this problem, I took a scrap piece of Luan plywood and cut it to fit the end. Of course, the road bed needed to be fixed, and then more ties relaid. Finally, we are ready to distress the ties and Maggie can paint them.
