|The big box set|
Amongst these sections I am going to need
1. A level crossing
I got the nice folks in B&Q New Malden to cut these in strips for me. It was then a simple case of marking off the length of track with a pencil and then cutting these boards to the length required. A quick sand to smooth off the edges and we are good to go.

Finally add greenery and you are good to go...
|3 metres of track|
I mentioned above that I was building three additional special pieces. The train station and switch were done in the same manner as above. I did have to extend the track for the switch to ensure that the 8cm wide track boards could butt up to the two exit points on the switch. The stain and platform will be built later on but I did cut out a base board for the unit and run the track through the middle of the board.

Next up the embanked track
