So are you getting rid of your indoor layout, and using all the track in the garden? Will you be using Skaledale stuff or scratchbuilding? How are you operating the points?

Sorry for all the questions :oops: ...

I had a layout tacked to a board that had to be stored in my shed that was 7ft x 4ft and could only be set up in the kitchen and i got very fed up with having to keep setting it up and down and wanted something more permenant so the best route was in the garden,as for points i'll just change them by hand as i don't want the hassle of more electrics or air driven things.
Not sure what to do about buildings etc i'll most likely do a mix of both shop bought and scratch.

Yeah it's goning to be great to get the work started but i'm still undecided in the track layout as the plan at the moment is to run along the fence line on as you can see in the picture.
Ignore the good bit of MDF at the bottom of the pic thats for my new bench in the shed.

Nice clear space you have.
