I know what you mean Mick about the planning, I am having similar problems with my new layout.

Thanks All,
I've made a cardinal error in making the track plan on the next board (station,goods yard and loco shed) without thinking too much about the continuation of the scenery from the board shown above so it looks like back to the planning stage for the second board :-[ :doh:

depending on the date you're depicting could you carry on the slightly overgrown feel onto the station board with the sidings coming to the board edge continued over the join into the undergrowth as a station that's not being cared for it quite as well as it used to be?

this should soften the transition without too much remedial work?

don't forget the obligatory wagon held in place with the weeds that everyone's forgotten about that may or may not have become a secret break room :)

@Black Sheep
I've just noticed your location. You do realise the whole building is riddled with listening devices courtesy of da Leyland Massive? :-X

I've been under every floorboard and every nook and cranny in this house - I didn't want to buy it as I could see it was too much work for us (we're in year 4 of a 2 year house renovation) so I know there are no devices.

I wanted to get a little plaque for next to the door saying 'The Yorkshire Embassy' as a joke but Millie wouldn't let me, we compromised on 'Downton Shabby' but never got round to getting the plaque made and so just have the house number

Yeah - I dunno why but I woke up with an idea for some carriage destination boards for my 'Kimbolted' layout which will involve printing them out on label paper and wanted to get it down on paper in case, come the morning, my brain cell had forgotten it ::)

Know exactly what you mean,Mick.

My current problem is I can't remember why I got up so early!  :worried:
