You will need to build an underframe for your boards to sit on otherwise it can warp big time.

Fully agree sishades,but until I get permission to floor the loft (council)then I haven't got the room for a frame,I have considered a shed but again I need permission and i'm not sure if I want my layout out of the house.

Well no update on the layout at the mo as i've not been well again :roll: but did this for my dads birthday,he's 60 now......aahhh bless :D This is his favourite loco,he used to watch them at the local station when he was a lad,basically a shelf,track and ballast....but it don't look bad IMO! :D

Hi all,

Due to lack of space at the mo and the wife not being happy with me using the kitchen table,i've now changed my layout to 7' x 2' and still 00 gauge. The layout will be extended as and when I gain more space.

Image

The top two lines are going to be a viaduct and hills at either end,at the right side of the layout will be a river coming through the viaduct and on down to the bottom of the board,next line down will be a disused siding and will probably have an old wagon or loco sat rusting away.
The following double lines will be the main lines and will cross the river probably over a girder bridge,the bottom siding will probably lead to a shed.

The viaduct will be the scalescenes one in random ashlar that i've just purchased.
Received a new loco today that will be gracing the layout......

Image

Construction begins this week and I can't wait to get started!

I can relate to that, my shelf layout started as just 1ft x 3ft across one wall of spare bedroom. It then sneaked onto the next 10ft wall, then the next 12ft wall and at the moment I am going across the final 7ft to the door....

nyhahahah!

What's the wife said to that? :lol: Got to say that the wife is really good about it,but when it starts taking up most of the bedroom......that may well change! :wink: :lol:
