Bush Terminals layout update

I got so hooked on the idea of the Bush Terminals layout that I’ve been talking about here that I gave in and put one together for myself. Still in N scale, still handlaid track and as with Prince Street it’s only 6×30″ overall so a really pleasant size to work on. It’s a blast to run during an operating session and a success so far. I’ll confess I have an almost irresistable urge to try this plan in a slightly larger space in HO.

  1. Hi CHris
    What did you make your cassette out of. I was going to use aluminum angle

    • Hi Phil. I made my cassette out of 0.040″ styrene sheet. It is designed to hold one ply of 1/4″ foam core and the track of course.

      Tacky as it probably sounds, the cassette I built is about the height and width of a HO scale gondola car. I started to wonder if it might just have been easier to just splice together two old Bachmann cars I have here. I might, just to see.

      I had intended to use aluminum or brass channel as you’ve described as it was what all the other cassettes I’d ever seen were made of.

      Hope this helps.
