Thanks to some helpful feedback on a forum I have redone the pillars so that the bumpers are higher up (thanks again to Tim for re-lasering me some) and continued with building more.  I dunno how I missed the bumper height as I had set them at the right height on the walls.

The title of this post refers to me building a batch of 40 TV monitors for the platforms.  A simple enough task with a bit of Evergreen square tube, some strip sections and a spot of glue and a file but the numbers mean it took a whole afternoon!  The reason why the middle one doesn’t have any brackets is the monitors are on the none viewing side of the pillar. That’s true for the one on the left too but being on the first platform I thought you might see the brackets from some angles.

Below is how they look in situe

Ah come on Jim, it is unlike you not to put in the detail the rest of us won’t see. Lets have the brackets on the non viewing side. 🙂

Anyhow think about the operators, the non viewing side is their’s (and your’s) viewing side.

Attention to detail is amazing. It must have been a nightmare to remove all the wrong height bumpers and put them all back on again.

Never mind not seeing the brackets – I’ll bet Jim has a plan to actually have information showing on the screens! Such attention to detail – it’s amazing. I remember looking up at one of those on a cold wintry day in 1982 praying that my train wasn’t going to be cancelled due to the bad weather.

When the roof goes on and the lights have been installed this layout is going to be a real treat – can’t wait!

Hi Jim, I’m intrigued as to how the OHLE will be done once the roof is on? Will it be fixed to the roof?
Sorry if this has already been asked,
