Wenchford III, 7mm in a loft.

Postby Pedanticmongrel » Sat Dec 24, 2011 5:49 pm

Work has started on a new layout, and a revival of the Wenchford name, I've been woodworking in the daytime but due to noise that could annoy the neighbours the evenings are spent doing quieter things like laying out points to get a rough idea of a track plan.

it's big enough for O, and thanks Kenny, I got it along with some other buildings and track at a bargain price a month or so ago. :D

Would I be correct in thinking that it is slightly lower to the ground as Cym Lydia, but not as low to the ground as Wenchford One?

Boards are slowly progressing but to break up the continous wood work, I've started laying track, the locos and stock are to check platform clearances and that the track is laid as smoothly as possible.
