So to give you all some facts :
- Track is PECO Code 100 except for the curves which are Hornby. The straight sections are mostly flexitrack
- Points are PECO Code 100 Streamline Electrofrog
- The station tracks can hold : 3 Pullman coaches, 4 LNER coaches, 4 Maunsell Coaches.
- The board is 210x120cm 6mm plywood
The layout basically consists of 2 loops, one 3rd radius and one 2nd radius. In the middle of these two loops is a small simple shunting yard. I wanted to keep the layout simple yet operationally interesting. On one side most of the curves will be covered with a hill and on the other half of the curves will be covered. The shunting yard will contain an engine shed and a good shed. At the top of the layout with a crossover near the middle will be a 2 platform station with a footbridge allowing crossings between the platforms.
Heres a trackplan to simplify things:
The track should arrive on Tuesday from Hattons and I've got some cork and Xuron track cutters on order from Gaugemaster which should come on either Monday or Tuesday. Then its time for a massive tracklaying day!
Here are some pictures of current progress :

A test of the trackwork to see if things will fit.

Thank you all for viewing.
