REMINDER (especially for those who can't read or have difficulty in understanding everyday English)

May I refer you to the rules in the OP and the challenge is Single Line Terminus.

Sorry, but I am getting fed up of seeing the same question over and over again and answering it over and over again. All I ask that you please read the thread, all the information and answers are there. The educational standards of some of our younger members worries me!! You can't be all as thick as Liam Green?

72cm apparently. Though you could just build the scenic area in the allowed 3' x 1' space for the competition and add any size fiddle yard you like after the competition has closed.

Due to illness and work related problems I have got no further than the planning stage and am unlikely to have time or the enrgy to make a start in the next few weeks so I will have to Withdraw. I was looking at doing either the Royton or Middleton branches in the Manchester area having ruled out Hunstanton and Mablethorpe as too large to model in the limited space available

I wish everyone else all the best and hope we get some really good entries
