Very nice. 3" gauge (Or was it 3½?")... They look smaller then 5" gauge.

Very nice. Never had any myself though a nice Maxitrack loco is tempting... I do have a friend who owns both a steam and a diesel in 4'8½" gauge. :lol:

Note the empty shelf top right that's for my son's live steam Alice which i think is maxitrack but he has it at home on the mantle piece although there's nothing better than the real thing.

Looks amazing and the kind of layout I look at and think "that's exactly what I want" then realise my shed is about a foot and a half too short in both directions! :D

Hi Everybody I'm back do you know its been well over a year since my last blog on your site,
Been a lot of changes since then firstly I had to move out of the cabin because I mist the wife I spent hours out there talking to my self plus in winter it got so cold now I'm back in the double garage which is integral to the house it has radiators I also built a false insulated wall inside the double doors so its warmer in winter and its next to the study where I can do my computer work,
The layout is more or less the same size but a foot shorter from top to bottom on the plan which has made a difference in track layout at the bottom I have also moved my block detectors from one point to splitting them up into 4 groups of 12 detectors which means less wiring.
The station area has stayed the same, I have added a 4 track main line on the left hand side of the layout 2 fast and 2 slow lines the odd shape at the bottom is a swing section to allow entry to the middle, The TMD yard will be where the passing lop panel is bottom left.
Picture showing the main line which has yet to be ballasted but I want to make sure I'm happy with all the track circuits before that, I'll put some more photo's on in the near future.
Mick

It might be over a year, but considering you've had to adapt the garage and the layout to fit one into the other, the layout has come on marvelously. Can't wait to see some more pics.
Growing old, can't avoid it. Growing up, forget it!
