Matt and the rest of you on here thank you for taking me on this journey so far, it's taken me two nights to read through this thread. As a 'neeb' this has been very interesting and shown me a lot that I'll need to do. Keep up the good work.

I have a little bit of rolling stock:

and one of these:

Plus a Kato V11 double track set plus some single straight lengths which I'll be using for the programming track.

Need to clear the space in the spare room / workshop then I can start getting a layout started.

Oh I also have some British steam so these may go into a museum building for pleasure trips  :uneasy:

Glad you are enjoying the thread Littorio - the chaps on this forum are so helpful as you can see. I was in exactly your position exactly 1 year ago - in fact I just checked - I bought the timber for the layout on 1st October 2018. It's been quite an experience and continues to be so!

Working on fountain installation.

I originally placed this within a rectangular grass footing area. It didn't quite look right IMO - a bit too pre-Bauhaus for my Bauhaus fountain.



So I've made a circular grass base for it to sit on instead.

Liking your work Matt :thumbsup:

Thank you Daffy!

I'm off on my austrian interrail trip soon. I thought I should really take a reminder of Globibahn on my travels.

After a lengthy selection procedure, I've opted to take the Globibahn service van. In an agreement of mutual co-operation with OBB, the van crew will make notes on best practice to bring home and potentially incorporate into Globibahn. It should be quite an eye-opener for them! :D

Nearly there with this!





I've learned it's definitely best to put scenic elements on convenient bases for at least initial positioning purposes! Easier to remove if things don't look as good as anticipated.

I'm just revisitng the platform 2 canopy length question again. Thinking this might be about right.

I've ordered I-beam for the supports but still not turned up.

Seconded
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I agree with the above. Everything seems to be in the right proportions.

To my untrained eye, I'm guesstimating the gap between columns is about twice that of the height of a column (the columns are 19mm high in 1:160).

That makes the gap 38mm wide between columns.

So I've worked out column spacing as below. Any thoughts?

In this version the columns are spaced a bit wider out.
