Well the room is nearly ready for the baseboards to go up then Chillthorpe will be in progress by the weekend, I will start posting pictures shortly, the model is not based on anything specific, but hopefully I will get it running via computer control, also adding plenty of relays so I can switch it all back to manual control, no shortages of wire and relays here.
This is just going to be a fun layout which will run to my requirements, I am using mainly Kato track and for the fiddle yard I am going over to Peco code 55 the layout will be in a L shape, the main board will be 10' 6" X 2' 11" and the L leg will be only 12" wide for a small station.
I think her in doors will not be seeing me until I collapse in bed of a night time lol.
I am going to be running as much era on the layout as possible, only hope I can carry this off, I have had my head in my Ipad reading the Railroad & Co manual, I am starting off with the bronze and then by March or may be later when I have got a feel for it I will upgrade to Silver.
The layout will be industry based with a Mainline Station and hopefully plenty of loco's running, how long will it take! who cares it is a hobby and time has no limits.
