Thanks Glencairn, that's a good point!

I had already thought that the underside of the duck under needed to be boxed in with a removable cover to prevent damage to any wiring on the underside, but now I will provide for the cover to be padded.

Cheers

Hi All,
Here as promised last week is the latest version of my layout plan:-

Please bear in mind:-
Due to my poor drawing skills this is prepared using sections from published plans with a few hand additions mainly around the branch and the goods yard.
Once I am happy with it, I will draw it out at 1/10th scale on graph paper.
I am not yet happy with the station arrangement as I want to move it further round so that just the ends of the platforms appear in the scenic area. However I have yet to work out how I can then have the branch junction to allow more space for the goods yard in the correct place between the branch and the relief lines , rather than current un prototypical arrangement behind the platforms.

Constructive comments welcome.

Many thanks
Paul

Sorry about that!

Clearly something went wrong with the post I will try again!

Cheers

Here is another attempt at posting my layout plan!
Not sure if it will be the right way up, the original file was but the forum preview shows it upside down??
Regards
