Spot on.

I get up and get out.. getting washed and dressed in between.

I'm never ready to eat breakfast, so I go without until lunch some time between 12 and 2.

Bit of forward planning I know (you probably wont get round to it until next year after all) but I remember you saying something about a certain station - hope these help

Ok, as I have the new space available to myself after the home purchase I've had to turn back the clock yet again to maybe this time last year.

I've gone back to basics getting the rough plan I made on XTrkCAD marked out and modified suitably to make it fit the space.

So far it's looking good I think. The plan may have been very rough, but I think it's going to be pretty damn close to spot on.

Lucky..

As it's all in pencil on wood it's difficult to get a quality photo of it, so here's a token picture to liven up the post (if you can see past the carpet).

Good to see some progress. In a way the fact that it's taking some time is probably a good thing. Means you can really finalise your trackplan. I tend to rush in and end up wanting to change things when it's too late!

It probably is a good thing, though I'm very surprised the rough idea I did out on XTrkCAD is going to need almost no modifying to make it fit the space I have.

That should speed things up considerably this time round.

Glad to see you're making some progress Rich.

As am I.

One way or another it's been 4 years in the planning. I was starting to think it is a jinxed project.

That's well down the (very) long list of things to do to this place. Everyone ignore the carpet, the railway isn't going in that room :P

I think it's a nice carpet :^(

Rich, why didn't you just print the plan and lay that on the baseboard?

I haven't got that much ink for my printer :P

If I had something I knew was going to definitely fit the space I have then I would print out the whole thing.

But...

One thing to keep in mind is that I'm not a 100% convert to XTrkCAD yet. I'll use it to throw some ideas down and get a quick (!) idea what something will look like, but I still prefer getting down on boards with pencil and ruler.

Personal preference and all that.
