Sorry for lack of update and post but sadly have had to put the railway away for a few weeks as we have a guest staying with us after a double heart bypass !

But rest assured I've been buying bits and bobs so once I've got the room back it can all be reset up and it will be all go !

Just a quick question as well how easy is it to change the  destination boards on a dmu 108 from graham farish ? And what font size is best if using word ??

Hello all,
 :sorrysign: there hasn't been much to report for the last few months but I now have the railway room back  :claphappy:

Now my  dilemma is do I put my layout back almost as it was or do I turn it around 180degrees so that when you look at it you look at the station you can see all of the platform or does it go back as was  :hmmm:

Also hoping to get a lot done in the next few weeks as hwmbo has discovered gardening !!!

Well not such a productive day yesterday  :censored: something about gardening being something we can do together ... or you do all the lifting and clearing up whilst I swan around potting etc  >:(

However I did get a baseboard built this afternoon after work and have started to relay the track although I have some flexible track on order from hattons that hopefully will arrive this week !!!
 







My first attempt at building a base board ! Total length of layout 12foot by 2ft !
Total scenic area 10ft ...

Looks like 3 boards 4ft x 2ft to make the 12ft?
How are they joined together please? Coachbolts? Pattern makers dowels?

Correct it is 3 4ft boards held together with coach bolts, and holes drilled ready for a bus wire for each line

one end has its own supporting legs and the joined to the others which sit on an IKEA desk




The start of relaying the track why does it never go back how it was  :laugh: although once the flexible track arrives I hope it will make it look less train set and more model railway ...

Well another afternoon of freedom I mean housework and dog walking ....
I have rearranged a section of track (see picture below) to get it more like the real life location I think and hope !!!



My next decision is do I put in the bay platform or not ...
also trying to decide so I go for cartridges that I can left out etc or go for a fix in place large scale turntable  :-\ :scowl:
