A new house, new plan

Postby S_Jay » Sun Jun 01, 2014 11:16 am

Hello all,

Long time since I last posted but I'm about to move house and have been working on a plan for some time. I have changed my mind from a terminus type plan to a through station (like most on the Midland mainline). The plan is below, 16ft by 9ft (Garage is 9ft by 19ft). Since this is a house is one we hope to be in for a long while so it's a an ambitious plan.

The main palforms are 8 ft long (HST 7+2) with other platforms 6-7ft. I've used Hornby platforms to indicate their position. There are also three simple stabling routes at the bottom of the station suitble for DMU type stock (Voyager, Meridian that sort of thing) and two loops at the top. To the North of the station is a fuel/engine stabling point. There are multiple run round loops to allow trains to be turned, or to take trains off the mainline to allow faster trains to pass.

At the bottom is a container yard. each road is 8ft+ in length

Any questions please ask!

Looks very good . Plenty of scope for interesting operation.

I assume planning permission is all approved by your other half :D

Thanks Frolly.

And yes the Garage is mine. All mine. The other half don't care what happens the garage!

Just got to figure out how to sneak £1000's of stock/track through the front door and into the garage.

I have noticed that some people have come up with a novel use for the unfitted junk room called "the garage" on estate agents house details - they put cars in them overnight. Apparently you pay less for your car insurance if you do this.

Doesn't the garage have a door of it's own then? :D

Due to the increase in elbow room provided in modern cars, they may fit in the garage but you won't be able to get out until you drive it out again. If it's a case of car or layout, I think my car would lose out. Having a decent alarm and tracker system fitted to the car will save you more than just putting it in the garage.
