PANEL BUILD­ING

Model Rail (UK) - - Know Your Stuff -

The panel en­clo­sure is 18in long by 9.5in deep and stands 3.5in high at the rear, re­duc­ing to 2.5in at the front. This gives a nice slop­ing top onto which the con­trollers, switches and push buttons could be mounted. The panel was built from ½in thick timber, with the track en­trance and ex­its cut be­fore assem­bly. Quar­ter-inch square strip wood was pinned around the in­te­rior of the frame, set just be­low the up­per edges, to sup­port the plas­tic top and al­low it to sit flush within the en­clo­sure.
