Switching in Grimstad

The layout has been dormant for many months, so I just felt like taking a picture of my brass NMJ Superline 32.290 steamer doing some switching in Grimstad. The car is a reworked Fleischmann model. The picture is taken with an old Iphone 4s.

The Grimstad Line 2.0

Yesterday me and a friend started construction of the Grimstad Line 2.0. I have kept the three main modules for the Grimstad station, but the rest of the layout will be totally rebuilt. I hope to be able to post a schematic track plan soon.

L-girder benchwork under construction.

Grimstad will be in the center of the room now, where the old peninsula used to be.

Goodbye peninsula

I have never been really pleased with the peninsula of the Grimstad Line. So, although it took me a great deal of effort to move it to my new hometown, it soon became evident that it had to go. The lack of progress on the layout is usually a good indication that something is not right. The peninsula is now gone, and Grimstad Line 2.0 is already underway. 
A sad sight. All the trees and mountains are gone...

Not much left now.
