  :welcomesign: welcome to the site from some who's ex of MK twice..
First living in Bletchley park  1975-1976
Second in Stantonbury 1988-99

Sounds an interesting layout,  I did consider building the srps Bo'ness which would give a similar style layout to yours.

Thank you all for the warm welcome.

I'm living in Wolverton right at the end of the railways works so the bird song in the garden is often accompanied by the sound of an 08 shunting.

We are only a stones through from the west coast main line which my little boy very much enjoys watching so although the layout will be a heritage line the preserved locos may have to share the rails with the occasional Class 350 or Voyager.

There is nothing wrong with modern trains on a preservation railway..
