Baseboard construction (continued): Now for the western ends. Photos show the lifting bridge construction and the beginnings of a small computer desk. The vertical bridge supports are substantial 2½” x 2½” timbers just in case someone accidentally kicked them! The hinges are “pub bar hatch” brass hinges which are very accurate and robust. The bridge drops down into a cradle shown in photo 6.  Also in photo 6 there is the skeleton of what will become a small computer desk. My thinking was that for now I would not use a computer to control the layout but “just in case” I thought that I would include the facility within the infrastructure!
