Hi, Ditape, and welcome to the NGF.  :wave:

Your plan looks very neat and functional. Would you like to tell us more, such as era, region, etc the layout will represent? What locomotives will run?

We are a nosey lot and love piccies! I'm also curious to know if that's an operating well in the middle, or a bed!

Welcome in Ditape :wave:

As George said looks like a good plan full of operational interest :thumbsup:

Hmm, bed in the middle - how cool would that be laying there listening to the trains going round? :D

A nice, simple classic layout ideal for watching the trains go round whilst having enough operating interest: station, sidings, loco shed, too.

Any particular geographic location?

Hi Ditape,  :welcomesign: looks good, as everyone says, should be great fun. If those squares on the plan are 1ft, that's one heck of a bed.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Those squares can't be a foot, either that or he's found some 2' long N gauge points somewhere! :D

Hullo Ditape, and welcome to the forum :wave:

Great looking layout and, like the others, I'd like to hear more about what era you are running.

The layout is 8'x5' and the grey area is a operating well, the layout will be based some where in the southwest,in the  60's/ 70's and will feature both steam and diesel motive power,but I am a firm believer in if I like it I will run it or it's my railway and I will run/do what I like.
