And mine have always been inside, even when I drove a company car. There's nothing worse than having to start the day by scraping ice and snow off the windows ! Quite lucky now as this house has a garage with room for 2 cars and a small workshop area to one side. In our last house my layout was in the shed at the bottom of the garden so sometimes I didn't visit it for weeks. Now I'm in a nice warm bedroom albeit a bit small for my current layout - but I have a cunning plan

have you converted it into a bedroom so that your model railway layout can stay indoors?

Ha ha, the N Gauge layout (now 20ft long) takes up a small space in the barn...

A car never gets to see the inside of it is my guess.

A 20ft layout takes up a small space in the bar!!!! What size is the (by inference) main layout? AND you have a bar! Green with envy? Positively Hulk like hahaha!

I have a Morris 8 Series E convertible and an Austin 7 van in my garage, as well as a 14' x 5' layout. Admittedly, all three are OO!

In case anyone sensible is still reading this thread, try to avoid altering the outside appearance or Mr Enforcement Officer may just call by. Seal up the garage door with mastic, tape etc on the inside to stop draughts, and then you can do a quick insulation job with sheet polystyrene on the back of the door. If you can get hold of the stuff, large 4" thick blocks used for external wall insulation are great, super quick, really effective and smooth enough not to need much in the way of plastering. They can be cut with an ordinary carpenter's saw, and offcuts are just great for building hills.
