Nice going Del.  :thumbsup:

Really envious of that valley and viaduct!   :envy:

If you've got the space for a fiddle yard then great; that's what I'd go for.

That's a disappointment.

And that's an understatement!  :-X

All the best for the Big Change and please keep us up to date with the new plan.

Very sorry to hear that Del :(
Is SWMBO open to negotiation or would you end up in the dogbox :uneasy:

That's a big shame Del, it's SHWBO's like that that give all us women a bad name, have you tried reasoning with her, like what a waste of a large room just for the occasional guest, or maybe, flowers and a box or two of choccies might work.   ;)

That's real bummer Del. Just as things were all starting to take shape as well.

Some wives just don't comprehend the time and effort that goes into a model railway. It's just 'boys with toys' as far as they're concerned. Perhaps you should suggest that as she is killing this hobby, you will have to find another one . . . . . . . . like playing pool with your mates at the local hostelry every night.  >:D

That's a very similar size to what I have for Market Havering Del so I can assure you that you can build a reasonable layout in that space. One thing I did to increase the available layout area was to fit a sliding door in place of the original hinged one.

thats what i thought it gives me a nice area and plus i will have maybe 4 tracks plus goods yard and a fiddle yard at both ends behind non scenic areas what do you think on that idea oh and plus i could have a large station area main line and then still have a country scene else where on the layout this is sound better all the time now 
 yours sounds a nice layout have to pop over and see it as you dont live to far from me

Mine's a basic 8 x 4 as well, amazing what you can do in that sort of space with N gauge.  I've managed to get a 10 coach 8 platform terminus, likewise a 8 platform (well 6 but 2 are split) through station and a nice little reversing loop branch line :)

You're very welcome to pop over any time you like Del though there's not a lot to see at the moment apart from miles and miles of underboard wiring. Drop me a PM when you fancy it.
