2.5 months after moving and the first train has run, albeit just a running-in turn for the Farish 4F I had for Christmas.  Temporary circuit of Kato track at the moment, but on real baseboards :thumbsup:

And the track-laying commences.  The baseboards in the photo are all fixed in place and now the track is going in with wires dropping through holes drilled where required.  The two points forming the crossover in the centre foreground have been trimmed to give a closer track spacing, but aren't fixed in place yet - hence the slight misalignment.  I'm waiting on delivery of some glue as mine had gone hard in the pot >:(

A couple of Tomix condominiums on the horizon give a hint of the urban environment planned.

Hi Steve,

This is where you have been all this time! Quite a change from your previous empire at the other address! Funny how things change and in which direction! I must confess to having a fondness for Kato Unitrack.

The biggest change is perhaps that the new room will never be as pet-proof as the old loft was.

1CAT hasn't met 4CEP yet, but it's just a matter of time!  :worried:

Several options:

1) Close door with feline devil on the other side.
2) Install dog in railway room.
3) Shotgun, air rifle or well swung shovel.  The latter two make less noise.
