hi everybody

i am an n gauge modeller, at age 15 my collection of stock is more that adequet. i have attepted a layout on a 6x3 board, this didn't turn out well so i set out to design a new one, this one however would be for my thomas stock, built of Peco setrack and have detachable boards.

i have chosen to include:
- double track terminus
- engine shed, goods shed
- roads
- houses
- trees

i came up with the plan below

You need to upload your pictures to somewhere like Photobucket so that you can get them to display on the forum.

Sounds like an interesting plan.

as this is an N gauge model thomas is made by tomix,

my stock so far:

Thomas - Annie, Clarabel
Henry - Express red coach, brake red coach
James - 2x box van, 2x open wagon, fuel tanker, S.C.Ruffey wagon
Percy - Mail wagon

All Tomix, waiting for another express coach and mail wagon to appear on eBay.
