Welcome B1 61126 please do share. What space are you working with ? Will it be analogue control? Steam or diesel or both ?

Hello again I'm a die hard steam addict it'll be DC control I'm sorry though there's no track plan I'm not tech savvy enough to plan a layout using any form of program so it's all in my head this'll be the fourth evolution having learnt things along the way.
For the same reason I'm not going DCC plus my fleet of locos is considerable and I just can't justify the cost of chipping them .
And lastly if it's a steam engine I'll run it I'm not era or region restricted more to follow .
I have approximately two walls one six/seven feet and the other about 10ft lastly there will be turning back into the room a detachable fiddle yard so when bed is needed I can remove this 👍👍👍

I can see that a leaking shed would seriously damage your mojo.  Good luck with the new venture.
With kind regards

I'm slowly getting room ready for me to use I've been down to the shed to start dismantling what's down there only to find one of my gaugemaster three track controllers has gotten wet 😢😢😢😢 looks like it'll have to be sent to gaugemaster for repair LOL hopefully it'll be cheaper than getting a new one .
Also I've got two of the myloco sound generated that are damp so there now in the house in rice (this does a good job of soaking up moisture) then I'll reconnect them to see if their still alive.

Well I'm on the severely at risk list along with my good lady so I'm currently on furlough from work so the room is pretty much clear now .
I've been working on dismantling the layout it's proving challenging my track was pinned down and it looks as if there's been enough moisture in the chip board to rust the nails in so taking some removing but getting there slowly.

Take your time and stay safe.
Looking forward to photographs of your new layout in due course.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.
