Hello,
thanks for adding me as a new member (and as a newbie too :oops: ) of this great community.
Let me introduce you to the Very Low Budget Railway. I watched this video several times and I decided to build a layout like the Ten A Penny: https://youtu.be/GqO9zNfseSs?t=421

I'm very happy with the result. And now it's time for the first running session I guess.

Thanks for watching my thread.

Oops ! I forgot to write the dimensions: 0.92m x 1.27m

Well, you've made a start and got a running session in - well done. R-
Not sure if I have plenty of time on my hands - or I’ve simply forgotten to do something really important.

Thanks Gentlemen. :D
The layout needs a shed (or two), a station, a few houses and some greenery. I stiil have a lot of work to do.

When I'll be a little bit richer than today (hope so !) I'll buy one Peco left handed point (ST-241). I'll build a new siding.

Today, I removed one point and one siding. This siding was a little bit too short for what I really need.
