I don't want an end to end layout so don't know if to put a loop in at either end and effectively have a dog's bone sh...

Thanks for all the comments. Got a bit bored of track laying and wiring so have started some scenery work. Made a start on the quarry area with the foundations of a road. I've got the woodland scenics road kit for this job, so watch this space. Also dug out the background I bought ages ago, what a d...

This weekends activites

In an attempt to do you guys a track plan without spending too much time on the computer (i.e. give myself more time to model). I have taken photos from right to left of the layout and tried to merge them together. This failed miserably... So from right to left, here goes (please merge in your head)...

Hi, Just trying to catch up here... I didn't realise you'd left the other thread behind and gone out into the garage. What about your control panel in the loft?

I've got it all but I also need to use it as an office and ideally want to keep access to the doors.

Why do you have a plan?
