Odds and Ends projects
« on: May 18, 2014, 05:04:54 PM »
I figured I'd start this thread for the content I'm making for my Western Region Route and a couple other routes I have going.  In all reality I probably will never finish any of the routes but in the mean time I'll enjoy making these items.

SO I'll start out with a nice little #8 switch out I'm working on.

Thanks all.  I almost screwed up.  I need to update my track before I get to carried away with that switch.  After all, it's preferable that the switch outs and diamonds match up with my track splines.  There is enough differences that this track won't match up with my older track.

Updating track.

My first attempt at stitched track.  5 levels of detail.



This is what I originally wanted for my track when I made it so I had almost everything I needed for my older track so I decided to see if I could get it to work.  So far so good.
