Re: Ruby hills

I am embarking on a loft layout in the next weeks and also have limited space between the rafters. Great to see others having the same access difficulties as myself. Makes you feel that you are not alone. I mean these comments as a compliment to your layout of course!!

Re: Our loft layout....(freightliner)

Hi Scottw Came across your pictures and will follow with interest. I am relieved to find someone else using the 'V' of the attic trusses to place a railway.

Re: Ballymena Railway Station And Line

Thanks for the feedback NEvans and Ex-Pat. I should have said that this is just phase one of the plan with a full loop of the room being planned in the future. I figured it was easier to operate in baby steps and concentrate on this area first although I do plan to run double track the full length o...
