350 metres in total
And there was me calculating earlier that I'd managed to fit 35 metres of track into the space I have available, and wondering if it was too much...

so happy to manage at least 2 of them done.

Is there a sub station at the bottom of the garden Maurits, with that much track the power surge on start up will put out the local supply.  :D
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

Discretion is my name. By the way I like your post script Maurits, I would add "am retired and wish I had more time & money"  :beers:

Well that was a very busy week gone, firstly visiting customers in Cornwall, Devon for four days, Saturday the Princess Risborough show with Horsely Fields so finally today some me time.

as my parents are over from Holland I had an extra pair of hands which was very useful.

so firstly we have finished the back boards till the full 10 metres length





painting was the next job.



and after the paint was dry we have started with the first of 8 back - scenes.



we have also started with the top shelving/ light bar which also needs to be finished first before we can start with the construction of the layout.

This week most nights home so for sure some building time

best regards

M.

As always, I am in awe of your planning and attention to detail. I'm sure that this will one of the very best model railway layouts and I really am looking forward to seeing it develop.

Very tidy work Maurits, no sawdust, empty cups laying around  :D

Does Mrs M come round behind the workers or do you clear up?

Hi Maurits71,

Could I ask where you sourced your backscene, also what material its made out of and how you fixed it to the boards?

Cheers, Mark.

Hi Mark.

they are customized back s-cenes based on an existing range.made by Art-printers. art-printers.com.  I have contacted John to see if he could change a few things which he did .

they are heave paper ( think 180 grams ) and I have used 3m spray glue to fix them to the walls.

I can highly recommend art-printers to every body. 1 e-mail with lots of questions, a reply which was straight forward and 2 days later in house.
