]First started having model railways from a young age when use to be clockwork. I had a small fold away layout on a board then fold down one in my room.Then larger one in the garage until needed the space to keep my car so i rebuilt round my grandparent spare room. After two years i decided in October that i needed it closure to home so it was time to clear the loft out, 7 car loads to the dump and several trips to wicks to buy wood to board the loft out with i had a nice big empty space to start.

That's a really impressive set up you've got there - I especially like the long straight sections - something that a lot of layouts are missing, despite so much of the railway being made up of straight track!

Nice layout. Your allotments put my vegetable patches to shame - though I am in half-size (that's my excuse!). Like the way you've modelled allotments and grass virtually around the roof support timbers! Though I have to say that monkey is well over-scale :lol:
