[Hon30] The new module get started

Posted by Gerd on Wednesday, 2 December 2015

I spend the first evening working on the new module of my Hon30 layout. I made the module from two 20x30cm Casani boxes and glued/screwed them together for a 60cm long module. Next I installed the plugs and sockets, layed the tracks at the module joints and did some tests with the existing modules. I also have the detail stuff at home to make fast progress on the new module (hopefully). The scene will show some cows and a barn.

The geometry of the new module shows a D-typ joint on both ends, which gives the most possibilities to add this module to the layouts. The following overview plan shows the new module in purple.


To be continued, Gerd

    I think I have fallen in love with your HOn30 layout! I’m in the USA and am having trouble finding a reference to a Casani box. Do you think you could add some more info?
    Thank you very much!

      Never mind! I just found your blog post about the construction materials and differing names.
      Thank you again!

    Hallo Gerd deine Waldbahn ist saugut:
    Ich finde das Zusammenstecken der Module sehr erstrebenswert. Ich werde wahrscheinlich diese Idee von dir aufgreifen. Vielleicht kannst du mir noch ein bischen über die Stecker zum Verbinden der Module erzählen. Wie heißen sie ganz genau. Wo bekomme ich sie her.
    Ich hoffe damit keine Fehlbitte getan zu haben.
    Im Voaus besten Dank.
    Grüße Wolfgang.
