Hi i started this a while ago it is proceeding steadily basicly i wanted a layout that has to be stored under the spare bed so not to high. I want a layout i can just run model trains on i'm not sticking to a particular era or area as i like to many things so it would be impossible to narrow it down but as i am new to all this maybe a era/area will come out of it and i'll eventualy stick to that but for now something to run on with some scenic to keep me occupied i have taken some pics so far.

Nice construction there Dave, what thickness of ply (I assume it is ply) have you used :?:

The track is code 55 the curve radius is 15" to get the maximum run on the board all the underlay and track is copydex'd down which worked a treat i will be using DC and have wired each piece of track layed with 4 isolating sections operated by switches.

I have taken some pics of the switch box which is re-movable so the board will roll under the bed without snagging

Hi lofty the ply is 8mm for the framing with 6mm top it has a 9mm board diagonaly underneath to make the whole lot rigid in retrospect i should have made the framing half the depth i did to allow more head room under the bed therefore higher scenics could have been added.
