Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
Over the past couple of days, I’ve been able to get the first layout section up on its own legs. As mentioned before, 2 of the legs had to be set back to accommodate the heater.
With all the legs on the module, I flipped it over and positioned it against the wall. I was surprised and delighted to find how lightweight it was. Future modules will be built with lighter legs, making things even more movable and light.
I still haven’t added cross braces on the legs, but honestly, they’re fairly sturdy as is. The only concern is one that I knew about before I started building- the layout is a bit tippy as it is only 18 inches wide, with the legs only being about 14 inches apart.
As you can see it’s quite level, which is impressive considering the basement floor isn’t even flat…
Look for a video soon… -Harrison
