@newportnobby thank you for the reply, Sorry mine is so late still trying to get over the flu still :'(

I've wired all up and works a perfectly I just don't want to really have to change anything of I can help it lol  :beers:

I was hoping to use the entrance from the middle from the exit of the walling and use under neath as a hidden sidings to store incoming and out going loco's. Found a 00 Variant called Franwood on Youtube which is very similiar

Thank you for the latest update. I agree the 00 layout is remarkably similar.

@Chris in Prague Thank you :beers:

I've wired it right and it works so really don't want to have to redo it lol. I can't wait to start with the scenery I've bought a Kibri tank and fuelling depot I'm looking forward to putting together and finally starting to feel well myself :beers:

Well I've been messing around today with the layout and think I've got it sorted out finally. I think I'm going to remove the little lineside hut and place the twin lane engine shed and take off a little track to even up track lengths. It's coming together and think I finally have a proper plan  :beers:

Still more shops to be built then I can start on the detailing as the overall setup of the layout will be resolved

:thankyousign: for the help, Two years and third variant and I'm set lol

It's coming along very nicely. You need at least one grounded van body for stores, etc. The hut can be moved to a new location, bottom left, perhaps?

Well nearly 8 months later & I'm finally got some time to start on the layout again. Thanks to my partner buying this little beauty unexpectedly. I do like to build but I can't be upset, I'm so happy with it. Looking forward to some nights in building.

Look forward to catching up with some of the older builds and seeing so fresh new builds and ideas  :beers:

Glad to be back at the desk in front of the layout but unfortunately not the way I would have liked.

The business didn't really work way to much competition out there and ended up unfortunately selling all my locomotives, rolling stock & Control to keep it going but all failed. Anyways at least I tried but at least I can start afresh with era and place correct stock this time when funds allow  :beers:

Thank you for the kind words, I has it's advantages that it failed to be honest. Not being away doing the odd job here and there and spending time with my partner is a massive one, Can focus on home life again and as it was a side job attempt no massive loss just makes you appreciate the time and effort other do when starting out.

Thinking to try keep costs down may go back to DC from DCC as only a small layout and use a couple of dummy locomotives to fill the empty space on track.

At least I can be completely BR Blue again now :laugh:

Very sorry to read that it did not work out and you had to sell all your stock and controller. At least you tried and many people do not even do that.

Your new layout will definitely benefit from all your previous experience.

@Chris in Prague Thank you, I've kept the layout as part built by myself and father so couldn't let that go but happy it's still here and now waiting for the time I can do some Metcalfe kits or wire it up to DC and purchase as locomotive again but the time will come.

Llanrumney still stands lol, It's a learning experience and life is never ending on those :)

I'll be checking your layout update when home 'Work' PC I'm on won't load some photo's so looking forward to 8pm this evening to view them :beers:
