Sequencing tasks on an HO scale model railway.

The layout has reached this stage.

The remaining tasks are as follows:


DC 12 volt power supply for DC locomotives

12 volt supply for street and platform lighting

A few more platform lights and some street lights

A few more HO scale vehicles and possibly pedestrians and passengers


Install remaining ceramic buildings for townscape

Lay some kind of road and pavement surface in the town

Drill holes in pavements for street lights

Wire up street lights

Wire up platform lights (holes have been drilled already)

Paint townscape backdrop

Extend the track beyond the platform area so that the trains can get a bit of a run.

Construct platform canopy for station

Construct station brasserie.

What I can't make up my mind about is the sequence of doing the above.

The purchasing doesn't matter regarding sequence; I just happen to be suffering from paralysis of the wallet at the moment.

But the task sequence is perplexing me.

Basically, I don't want to be drilling holes AFTER the ceramic buildings are in position in case they get cracked in some way by the drilling process. On the otherhand, one would have a much better idea as to where to position the lights once the buildings are in situ.


Currently listening to:

One of my favourite sopranos, Christine Schafer, singing Henry Purcell.

Last night's dinner:

Hake, artichokes and olives in tomato sauce and rice
Approx cost per head: £5.50

Fontana Modern Masters:

Got that wrong yesterday, the covers for the Fontana books were designed by either Oliver Bevan or James Lowe.

Between 2003 and 2005, the British conceptual artist, Jamie Shovlin, then re-worked the covers into new works of art.
