Re: My 100th attempt

Hi
The trackplan isn't yet finalized as I only drew it out quickly for an idea of the final plan
Also the car is not likely to be to scale as it's a keyring and it shouldn't matter as it's only a bit of fun! That's what railway modellings about isn't it?

Re: My 100th attempt

hi again, right, alot has happened since the last update, namely the next board has been started!
