As everyone else has said this is a fantastic layout!

I'd never considered a box file layout to be properly feasible but this has made me want to attempt one sooooo much!!

I am very new to  this forum but this post gives me faith that I can find some inspiration here. I had been looking for a good compact solution to a small layout and wow this is perfect and self contained.

Hi, points are hand operated, not motorised, all very basic.

Thanks. I didn't think there would be enough room to hide points.
