A new steam loco arrived at Kerluk's. My father bought it in 1965 and it always runs fine.

Ah a 2-8-2, or is It a 1-4-1 or even a 1D1 ? Or as OVSB would have it a 11D, never could follow that guy's logic

Some basic blocks of scenery, or a divide?

I like insulating foam (not expanded polystyrene) as it is easy to carve and to build up in layers.
Enough for a small (or even big) model can often be found in skips.

Cliffs with a lighthouse on top, or gently rising fields with sheep?

How about a bit more track, say a siding or two, to allow some "play" shunting, other than just running round and round (also means you can have more than two loco's on at a time!)

Many thanks folks for all your replies. I must work on my layout ASAP. But I don't have enough room to expand it.

Not necessarily at all.

With G scale figures, and then buildings to match that would represent a 12" to 15" gauge railway, suitable for an amusement park or seaside.
Very much something that could be modelled with not alteration to locos (see the Romney Hythe and Dymchurch trains)
1/24 doll's house buildings and bits and pieces work very nicely with a bit of care.
