Littleton! 8ft by 1 1/2 ft so far!

Simple 00 gauge GWR preserved railway shud allow a few out of region engines comprises of 2 platfroms with a fottbridge platform 1 will be 6 / 7 coaches long and platform 2 will be 2 /3 coaches long
there is a simple goods yard with 2 sidings and a headshunt / loco shed spur eventually to have a ash pit and isolated for 2 loco's
the whole layout centers around the double slip as it allows locos trapped by trains in platform one to eventually enter the shed as soon as a loco comes off to the head the train out
also allows freight trains to be marshalled usin both platorm 1 and 2 roads aswell as the yard


Image

as you can see im still undecided in the enxt part but i need to get rid of a wardrobe before I can do that
eventually it will be a u shape in my room but a l shape or a end to end in exhibition mode yet to decide lol!

'XD' Represents a huge grinning smile much like this smilie :mrgreen: represents, just think of it as a smilie without the cutesy graphic.


Nice layout mate, keep it up :)

Should really start one myself, once the loft is finally floored!
