Someone should say welcome - so welcome!

$ track roundy is my sort of layout, 1980's though........well you are the fat controller

This was a boot of my effort overseas until I had to strip it down to come home, a 2 track roundy above a 4 track roundy and it was always 19th May 1962 not a blue deseasal in sight !

Anyway there are all sorts of modellers on here and you are very welcome, we like updates and to know what is going on so tell us more!

How large?
any other features
track type
dcc details - if any

If you want advice or a second opinion - well frankly stopping us giving our opinions would be difficult.

Towcaster below, code 100, the 4 track curve at bottom is R2, R3, R4, R5 and really if I did it again R3 would be the minimum, upper level underlay by Gaugemaster, 12 arch Metcalfe viaduct and the slope to the right is 1 in 33.

Welcome to this forum Richard. Nothing wrong at all with the 80s! Twas in 1981 that I first saw the railways of Britain in real life, and I was impressed. That was at a time when the Colonial service was being run down, and anyway I prefer the modernish era myself. Will you be running any electrics?
