On the straight and narrow

Today a lot of the straight tracks alongside the platform were nailed down and the yard point positioned. The rails were cut across the baseboard joins and holes drilled for 2 of the point machines. The final piece of track to the end of the visible layout was also cut and positioned, with a cheeky little curve added to provide some extra interest (although it doesn't really exist in reality).

It has been confirmed that no maps with spot heights of the fridd isaf rocks exist and thus heights will have to be estimated. I have some photos of these rocks with people stood on top, and their height (a nominal 6ft?) can be used to estimate the actual height of the rocks.

Also today heathcote have confirmed that multiple motors can be used with the points indicator board discussed yesterday.
