East of the Blue Ridge

Chronicles of an On30 quarry railroad

Corner Solution - 1

I did a lot of looking at the cardstock back profile template. The right end close to Ariel Church looked fine, but I made a lot of adjustments to the left end and center.


I decided I wanted the extreme left end of the back profile to rise up as it approached the edge of the layout. I cut a hole in it so the track to Piedmont could pass through.


The center of the profile board in the coved corner of the room needed to be adjusted to fit whatever scenery I was going to try to put in the corner.


Looking down at the hidden track behind the profile board, there is an odd shaped space between the coved back profile board and the coved backdrop in the corner of the room.


I cut a piece of cardboard the size and shape of the space behind the profile board in the corner.


The cardboard was used as a pattern to cut a piece of foam insulation board to fit in the space.


Furring strip props were cut to hold the insulation board above the hidden track that runs underneath.


The insulation board will sit in place, and can be lifted out if necessary to allow access to the hidden track.
