Hi Miracleman,

Can I ask what the radius of the curves is on the looped branch line at the top please?
They look a bit tight and may well pose limitations for what you can actually run ???

The tightest curves on the branch line are 9 inch radius but I am only running 0-6-0 tanks on that line so it shouldn't be a problem

The scenic route looks great... Will it wind up a hill and through trees and cuttings? I like the variety of sections of the layout too.

Taht there scenic route will probably climb up through some hills and back down to the mainline at the top. Maybe a bridge over a river even .

At the moment I am still getting the baseboard built which is not easy when some of it is 10 ft off the ground. Also, I am making it sectional so that it can be moved in the future if necessary. btw, what is the best way to secure tracks at the board joints? I don't want them getting out of alignment.

I shall post a few pics of the baseboards when they are complete. I didn't realise how massive it was !

Have a look at Ash's YVR here

About half way down, post 36 for a good example of cross board rail joins.
Cheers
