I just got back from an easter holiday so no updates sorry, im a bit busy at school also so progress will be slow. At the current moment im thinking of doing the fiddle yard boards. Ive calculated that i can fit a 1.2m fiddle yard onto the layout, making the board size 3.2m in total!

On my previous plan i had cut it to fit under the t...
