I found the bolts! This was an important step for the HO scale Wheeling Freight Terminal layout. A couple sections use legs that are attached with bolts, washers, and nuts. All the section joints are bolted together. The proper hardware is an important component to set up the layout again.
I had labeled the leg units for the specific layout sections. Matching up these elements made it easier to get the layout back onto its feet. The bolts were also helpful in lining up the sections. Half of the layout sections came together one day with the rest falling into place the next day.
I found the end plate to protect the yard tracks. This is a key piece to keep the freight car fleet from rolling off into oblivion. The end plate is also marked to help crews identify the tracks.
Here’s the Wheeling Freight Terminal plan that appeared in a July 2016 blog post. The layout fits the new space with ample access on the yard sections and for the interior area. This August 2012 blog post features the original layout design details.
More progress to come!
