Given sufficient time, exposure to light and a steady diet of flexitrack, the infant layout shown in the first video will grow up into a big strapping room-filling monster.

Nice but just imagine the number of track cleaning rubbers you would get through in a running session.  :jawdropping:

You use Pale Ale to clean the track? Does it work?

IPA = Isopropyl alcohol. Ebay is the cheapest place I've found.

Indian Pale Ale is for after track cleaning!  ;D

It does if you use enough of it!

what happens, Trev, if they are both boys? Twice the fun?

Just got word that it is going to be 2 boys, due on 18th June, so I'd better get cracking on their layout.  :help:

With a bit of luck I might finish it before they are 4 years old.  :D

To misquote a well-known shark-based film, "you're gonna need a bigger layout".

Not quite in the same league as some of the previous layouts, but the diamond crossings help make up for it:
Crash at the crossing !!!!! N scale

Good to see it's not just me it has happened to. Thankfully the presence of my 4 emergency stop buttons have minimised damage to my stock  :doh:
