I had two loops for continuous running in either direction and a shed area for locos and sidings for wagons. Two trains running as I faffed about moving things around in the sidings.

Afraid not it was just two circles round an 8x8ft room with two sets of sidings.

Have a look at the pictures on here.

That was a nice layout you had WTD, I no how you feel as I had to dismantle mine which was not ever completed due to moving house but I will rebuild when settled in our new home.

A sad time but a new opportunity hopefully?

Big changes, new challenges, guess it’s good to not get to attached to a lay out.

Wave, Dave.

So with the lifting of the lock-down in Wales I’ve been able to go down and work on my boat again, consequently the modelling has been relegated to the evenings.
So far I’ve emptied the spare room to make enough room for the layout this was a big job moving two beds upstairs along with the matrasses and finding new homes for all the accumulated gear collected over many years.

Then I dug out some timber for the framework another big job as it was well buried.
This is all joinery timber left over from various jobs most of it will come out of a 9"x1 1/4"x16' board that was left over from a staircase.

While digging the wood out I came across some house wiring which I’ll use for the layout.

I’ve also got dibbs on a large box of track, no idea what is in it the box but hopefully I can use it for a design that is close to what I’ve drawn. Will be looking at that box next week, what should I be looking for, how compatible are different makes of track?
