Hi Steve,

Glad to hear things look like they're getting back on track (groan!) and the train room sounds great.

Cheers

Ben A.

That sounds like a seriously decent space for an n gauge layout!
With kind regards

Be afraid.

Be very afraid!

Indeed.  There'll be the sound of bricklaying from the stairwell and I'll fade quietly from the electoral register  :worried:

Yay!  In spite of the best efforts of assorted solicitors we're actually moving house tomorrow.  :beers:

Who knows when we'll get broadband piped in (new development) but I've got plenty of layout planning to keep me busy 8)

I've got wood already...

Good luck with the move.  When we moved in to our new build we had a 6 month wait for our phone line and broadband.  I hope the development you are moving to is a bit more organised than ours was!
I'm less organised than that, 2.5 years in an I've still not started on a layout!

Great news, hope the top floor does not become the storage cave in the early part of the moving in process! 

Look forward to seeing that great space put to good use!

And here I am in our new house. No broadband as yet, not even a phone line. Train room looks great, though, even if it is currently full of boxes.

Don't worry about the furniture. Get the train room up and running first.  :)
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Many congratulations, Steve. Now, you can start laying out real N Gauge track and points and moving them around until you're quite happy you've got everything how you want it. Much better than using a scale plan! 8-)

Many thanks for that remark! That is EXACTLY what I have been doing. I relate much better to placing points on my laminate living room floor and measuring the space they take up with curves etc. I thought I was just being batty and assumed everyone else used PCs and track planning software.

Now I feel greatly encouraged!  :bounce:
