I'm back..
« on: June 16, 2018, 04:34:29 pm »
Hello all

It's been awhile, I was here when the site first went active.

Nice to see how it's grown with plenty of active people.

Anyway, the reason I went offline for so long is pretty simple.. first I brought a house, then last year was lucky enough to become a dad to a beautiful little girl, with her now being 10 months the money situation is starting to improve and I'm thinking about getting back into the hobby I really love and enjoy.

I still looking for ideas, but cause of limit space and budget.. locations like Wrexham Central, Sherringham, Sudbury are catching my eye.
Basically a simple one line in and out layout, max length 2foot plus 2foot fiddle yard but I'm hoping this won't look silly being so small.

Anyway, that's enough to start with.. its good to be back.

Matt

Welcome back,
You don't say your time period, or regional preference.
Any of the Highland lines have always been single line.
The line from Southampton to Cheltenham, was for the most part single line. But closed ( mostly) by 1964.

Thanks guys!

I model the current era so bubble cars, 150s, 153s is my thinking behind rolling stock.

Location could be anywhere, but at the moment I'm thinking Wales has all the above units are available or will soon be in Arriva branding.

Welcome back to the madhouse, Matt :D :wave:
For such a small layout you might be better off with a traverser/sector plate of 18" length for a fiddle yard and tack the other 6" onto the scenic area :hmmm:
