Well I abandoned mine over the weekend so you're still ahead of me!

Too complicated, too ambitious, and as much as I liked the trackplan it was, with hindsight, not a suitable one for a portable layout. A new layout will rise from the ashes, something much smaller and quicker/easier to build!

Dave

I guess your exams finish soon, so a few months of freedom to get going on your layout.


Rich

I know your reservations but lay some track, once you get going you'll be fine, you don't have to start the scenery straight away.

Try 3 weeks Pete! New course starts 01 Nov :cry:

However, I'll have no studying at all to do during those 3 weeks so I shall be making a real effort to use the time to get the new layout started. The baseboard is going to be around 3' x 2' - much more manageable.

Dave, that baseboard size wouldn't have anything to do with a post on another forum would it?

To get back on topic - don't forget Rich, I have offered to come over for a weekend to help / hinder (take your pick) your layout progress. I'll even leave the kids at home :lol:

I haven't forgotten.. Leaving the kids at home is a definite requirement.

My bruises have only just healed from last time.

Sorry about that - they only 'play fight' with people they like so you should be honoured really.

Nope, it was pure coincidence I assure you. The trackplan I found was OO in 6' x 4', so I halved it for N gauge, but as I've mentioned on here before N gauge points aren't exactly half their OO gauge equivalents so I'm not even sure if the plan will fit, plus I was doing some rough calculations during a slow moment at work yesterday and I can't work out how the incline up to the upper station is meant to work. As far as I can tell it's a 1 in 20 gradient around a 10 inch radius curve. Now that's steep! So there's a good chance I'll be extending it to 3.5' or 4' x 2' - need to rig up a test track this weekend and see what sort of slope it's possible for my locos to climb.
