 :uneasy: Should you not add a back and front wall/fence- "Newton's Law of Gravity" ? I can see a Dominos effect.... ???

And as an aside- I travelled twice in the Herc- Once heading back to England from the Falklands War -Pre leave party for HMS Arrow
and Second time to Migrate to Canada- Many Thanks to The RAF from a Navy Boy.
I'm "OUT" -   of my mind-  Please feel free to leave a message

 :D  Quite right, and I have!  It's not shown in the pictures but I have a length of MDF on the front (also doubles as the handle to pull) and one at the back.

Hi Dave,

If you want an idea for hangar buildings you can find some plans here:
C:\Users\User\Pictures\!Trains\Baseboard\Aircraft Museum\click_here.htm

These pictures will give you an idea of what the plans make  ;)





cheers John.

Many thanks for the kind words Dave.  The wagons with the red containers on are PFA wagons, and are kits.  The others are Peco wagons that I've repainted.  Great to hear that you like the Class 37.  It doesn't get enough use sadly!

No idea Ash. :confused1:  I've got enough track to make four loops now, all in Kato Unitrack.  Then I have numerous sets of points - but no idea of where to put them yet!  Choices choices! :D  Trouble is, I just don't get the time at home to touch the layout.

What a disaster that would be if it toppled over! :o :)  The hinges I have used are incredibly strong, and run on ball bearings so there is virtually no vertical change as it slides in and out.
