I am having no problems using Firefox, it seems to be the favoured browser for most forums.

I've not used Firefox in a long time!  Might give it a go if it is compatible with Windows 10.

John

Edit:  It works in Chrome!  Just IE then by the looks of it!

Firefox works with windows 10

  :hellosign: all, time off hideous work so had chance to put my latest ideas on to Scarm. I have decided to keep the two stations, although both smaller in about the same place. The major difference is the centre return loop is now enlarged & moved to the side of the entrance, so the central units are only 300mm wide enabling this width of unit all around the shed. The new plan has just one main running loop with stations on the side, the planned second loop will drop from above the top station with a large return loop or central station stop. This is still very much work in progress, with the high level to be decided & maybe a Tram/LRV line. This new approach means the build can be in stages with trains running sooner. Thanks for looking & all comments suggestions more than welcome.
regards Derek.

For what is worth I thought your first plan was better. Anyway good luck I am sure it will be great.
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

Looks excellent Derek.
Is that a door between the two loops in the pink sections ?
If so , that is excellent use of space,
Very much looking forward to seeing this develop.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

  :hellosign: George, the first plan had the shed door on the end & now common sense in the garden dictates otherwise. Thanks for looking.

:hellosign: Martin, yes the entrance is between the Pink sections which are Ply. The grey are Hejne shelving sections. Thanks for looking.
regards Derek.

 :hellosign: Still making steady progress with the latest plan. I have added tram / LRV lines to link two new tram /trolley circuits on each of the return loops which will feature city shopping/ buisness districts. Lots more to add as I have weekend off. Any & all comments or suggestions are more than welcome, thanks for looking.
regards Derek.

 :hellosign: Another update to the latest plan which sees the higher level with sidings for freight or possible small container transhipment depot leading to a large return loop. I have swapped Hejne shelving in the two northern corners as the upright supports would interfere with the track & plan for these boards to be Ply, I can then place legs or supports where required. The central return loop will have Tomix tram track, the idea for the plan came from the highly recommended Tomix Trolley web site, I changed slightly then added the return loop for the LRV/ Tram line. Any & all comments & suggestions are always welcome, thanks for looking.
regards Derek.

 :hellosign: Still doing lots of thinking  :hmmm: the latest idea rearanges the track routes to keep high level at the rear as far as possible, the logic being the trains are in view more of the time. The lower LRV/ Tram lines will be close to the front & link to tram/ trolley circuits in the two Towns.  Still like the idea of multi-level for extra mileage, will add that part of the plan as i work it out. More importantly building in sections will allow running trains sooner  :claphappy:
Any & all comments & suggestions are more than welcome, thanks for looking.

Great layout there Derek. Planning is EVERYTHING enjoy.

I ave spent three weeks deciding what to do with Geominster and I have decided to start over having learnt a lot over the past three years. I am going to end the thread shortly, regards, George.

 :hellosign: all hope you had a good christmas & best wishes for the New Year.
My latest update adds the Tram/LRV lines using Tomix track but this time linked onto the town centre sections & 2 mid-way stations. Not totally happy, is this too much track even for me ?. As always please feel free to comment or suggest or even criticise & thanks for looking.
regards Derek.

 :hellosign: Martin , thanks for looking, I took another critical close look & if you realise the track will be on 3 seperate levels hopefully it should`nt  look too overcrowded.
regards Derek.
