I have the end framework built now i just need to cut the boards to fit them then the mainlines can be laid down and pinned in place but waiting for a dry day to cut them,and once that is done then i can run trains properly around the layout and at the weekend i will make the last part of the hinged section for the incline and fit in place using more hinges.

Managed to get the boards cut this afternoon and fitted to the framework just need to trim the end board to fit the framework,then I can start laying the rest of the mainlines on the hinged section and get trains running again.


Photo's of the boards fitted.

Not posted for a while as I have not been feeling up to working on the layout but today I went up into the loft to sort a section of the layout out which is the section where the hinged section is,because over the last couple of months I have come to a decision that I won't be able to clean the tracks the way I was going to do with the hinged section above the upper level.


So now I have decided to have that section of the upper level hinge up aswell as the hinged section that attachés to it so I can lift the whole lot up to clean the tracks below and fix any train,all other sections will have cutouts where buildings will be so they can be lifted out to gain access to the lower tracks.



Here is a picture of that section with all the upper level supports removed ready for the new hinged upper level to go in which is 6ft long.

Hi lee I know it's been a long time since I last posted but I will be posting more as the week goes on and once this is done I will be wiring the point motors up on the lower level and I will be able to switch points properly.


I am hoping to get a bit done this week as a week on Monday I am away for 4 days at my sisters place in Norfolk as she is moving to a new place so we are helping her to move,and two weeks after that I am away for two weeks in Norfolk again as my parents wanted a holiday near my sister.



Hi peter yes it is a huge layout at 21ft x 6ft 5" and uses the whole of the loft apart from my operating area and a 2ft Square section on the other side of the layout where I can sit down and work on the layout.

Holy crap that's massive!!! :shock:

Everytime I see huge spaces like this though I always think "imagine how much 'N' you could fit in there??" :wink:

Keep up the progress updates.
