It's alright for you to say don't despair, I'm on 10mg of clozaril a day due to this so called pastime :) I don't think it would work using other areas of the loft as it is dusty, also there is just enough space to work on all sides of the layout. Reflecting on the progress, I feel it is coming on, in that Rome wasn't built in a day! Just somedays I feel that nothing is happening, guess that's why I'm on the clozaril :wink:

There is some days when i feel that nothing is getting done i spent weeks designing a trackplan and everytime i looked at what i had i always had new ideas to make it better,and when i couldn't think of anything i leave it for afew days and then go back to working on it again with new ideas.

It just takes time thats all like you said rome wasn't built in a day,but you could always have a layout around the loft with a central operating well and got the layout around you and you in the middle.

Well today is the day that I finally get something nailed down, hurrah. :D Been down the post office and have recieved five left hand turnouts and two right hand turnouts, plus a Dapol SR CCT utility van. Does anybody know what CCT stands for? I'm going to link it up to a class 37 plus wagons would this be realistic? Pic's will follow.

Yep... It stands for "Covered Carriage Truck".

As for nothing getting done... I am at the stage of wiring my layout; there are 50+ points, all wired to operate electrically AND to display their setting on a mimic board. (I am using conventional DC control, just to make life interesting...)
I am concentrating on the wiring before I embark on any scenic work (although part of the track has been ballasted).

It can be fairly depressing to go into the loft and see the topside of the layout looking EXACTLY the same as you left it after your last marathon session, even when I know damn well I spent X-number of hours wiring and fitting those point motors!
Then to make it worse the other half comes into the loft and pipes up: "You haven't done much!" :lol:

To be honest, I didn't look at the post date, I am just browsing through old posts, trying to draw some inspiration/enthusiasm! :lol: :lol:

And, I don't have a cellar! :lol: :lol: :lol:
