Gasp – A Second Baseboard !

Baseboards must be like busses. You wait ages for one to come and then two arrive together.

Well not quite. I was so pleased with the first baseboard that I decided to build a second one while I remembered how. 🙂 It did take a week to build the second one, so they didn’t arrive simultaneously.

To hold the baseboards together I have decided to use hinges with removable pins. You can pull out the pin to separate the two halves of the hinge and separate the baseboards. I saw this in the British Railway Modelling video of their ‘Edgeworth’ layout (at around 2 minutes 10 seconds in the video). I’m sure this has been done many times before but this is where I saw it for the first time. It looked a neat idea, so I thought I’d give it a try.
