Here we were stopped in our tracks! the track at baseboard edge was showing signs of a switchback ride so further checks were made.
The edge of the level didnt touch all the way along the track- the Sundela has sagged.
Lengthy discussion ensued about what to do. Checking the possibility of removing the buildings intact made us decide that we have no option but to replace the baseboards. We had previously decided that maybe the frame needed some work but this has caused a major re-think. There is nothing worse that uneven track especially on an exhibition layout. So reluctantly we have drawn up some plans to remove the track and relay on a fresh base.
This will not be a quick job-or one we really wanted- but realism must be the deciding factor and a switchback ride is not one we want- This will take time but we are in no hurry!
