Brooklyn Terminal Aug. 19

With the design book finished and submitted to Kalmbach, it’s back to your regularly scheduled programming. Next on the docket is finishing the Belgian block wallpaper overlays on the street trackage. This gets particularly dicey at the double turnouts.

The first step is to photocopy one of the turnouts and cut the pieces out to use as templates. I’ll then place the templates on a sheet of the photo wallpaper to cut the pieces. Finally, I’ll adhere the pre-cut wallpaper pieces in place. It would be nice to have the block courses actually curve with the turnouts but that would be a monumental task so I’ll utilize the good enough philosophy to ensure progress moves along.
