Hi. My name is Pete and I am a new member, returning to my love for railways after many years, due to impending retirement. I have a collection of locos and stock, mainly Southern, and intend to build a seaside layout with a central station and a port-side harbour terminus. It is to go into our loft when the flooring work is complete. The projected name is Eve`s Bay.
Pity about your chosen region but I'm sure you will find plenty of other misguided reprobates here. Personally I model Gods Wonderful Railway in N Gauge but if we all did the same thing it would be a very boring world.
Thanks very much for the mixed replies of support. I worked for 10 years on the SVR on Gods Wonderful Engines (7819, 5164, the panniers etc.) to known that I had to have a change to my beloved Spamcans.
At the moment I am building (yes actually started!) the first baseboard with the Station, platforms and Goods/Bus terminus area on 4 feet by 4 feet MDF with 2x2 battens. Eve`s Bay Central has begun!
Thanks for the encouragement and I will send pictures when it looks more like a railway than some bits of odd timbers.
Re the loft hatch question, we have one attic bedroom over the back of the house and are at present expanding into the storage loft at the front of thew house. A new doorway is being made by expanding the existing 4'x2' vertical entrance in the shared wall and a new tongue and grooved floor laid on top of the beams and the wall plate. This should make a space around 13'x 12' at a height of 3' above floor level. I suppose calling it a loft was incorrect, but it has always been our name for that section over the front bedroom. Work is due to start in April, builders permitting, so I should get something up and running by Christmas...... some year or other
