Thanks - cutting the MDF (the warped frame meant there was overhang on one side) was a bit of a nightmare... but some sanding/filing afterwards got it nice and flush... I can see why some people would opt for Sundeala.... Though, personally, I still think the price premium on Sundeala is too high.

Thanks. Yes... a very long way to go. I am beginning to appreciate the whole "a model railway is never finished" thing...
As for the middle bit, I'm not sure yet. My original reasoning was that there was no way I could easily reach more than 3 ft across a board, so decided to cut it out. The result is something that I can either use as my control point or else just use as a sort of scenic break, if you will. The plan is to put a backboard round it at a later point and then add those scenic background shot things.
Really looking forward to laying the track and getting the trains moving. I'm probably going to start at the station end, and while I'm doing that have a temporary loop of track on the bottom end just so I can 'have a play' should I get a bit bored of hard work!!!
