Good to see you managed to negotiate with the money hoarder!

Are you going to scratchbuild some track ? Sounds like an idea to me :)

well done with the negotiations with the Domestic Control Board.

I'm guessing that you will have left the negotiating table a little light in the wallet area. but that said we are all happy that you will be continuing with the hobby.
hopefully in time you'll be able to extend your 4x2 board to a fully operational layout. guess you'll be needing your controller for powering your lights, points etc but not to run trains :wink: :wink:

ok here goes, its a very very slow start but it seems a 20:80 ratio of my time and me n her time lol
not really a lot done to be honest but im happy with wht i have done so far

im not making the stations the same curve as in real life its going straight
and looking at the scale and the size baseboard i have i probably wont fit it all in
anyhow less talk and more of what we like best on here :lol:

hi kye,

great start,
however i dont see any bracing on the main board, if you have done it you need to, the last thing you want is to get on well and then the board warp.

regards

Nice work Kye. I like the scratch-building you have been doing.

Are going going to have boards around the side to support the cardboard retaining walls?

the longer reatining wall will be attatched to a back scene
and the shorter will have supports
1)to keep it straight and
2 )to support a road

thanks for your comments
