lol yup infrontcat

yeah me too class 60,i cant wait to get started again,am hoping to work on my track plans then roughly see where the scenery is going to go.

i think i mentioned, it's now basically going to be based of the track mats(possiably might change my mind again lol) two loops with more sidings,and the outer loop running through a tunnel, and the inner loop will be raised where the tunnel/hill is(if you know what i mean lol).
soon as i have some news i'll let you know :D

Hi guys,i've not forgot about you lol.....

I have the industrial set now to go with my local caledonian set,the plan would be to have the caledonian running on the out loop in the countryside,and the industrial on the inner loop the town.
that is as far as i have got lol,theres no track plans for it as yet,infact really i have gone backwards as the board has been dismantled due to nowhere to store or use it,even though i'll end up out of pocket i am seriously considering selling it to finance moveing to N gauge to beable to build the layout i want,unless i can come upp with a cunnning plan to stay with what i have

I have decided to take the bull by the horns lol, and have made a decision.....

i am going to stay with my oo scale instead of selling it all to finance switching to n gauge,it will mean having a smaller layout(yet unknown) than planed,but i think worth it in the long run.

it wont be static as i have nowhere i can have it up all the time,so first before nowing what size the layout can be ,i need to see where i am going to store it when not in use,how far it will have to be carried etc.

any ideas or suggestions are gladley welcomed(the loft is out of the question).

At the right hand side will be hills with a tunnel for the outside track and the inside track will be slightly inclined on the hillside,to try and make the layout more interesting.....
