Hello Everybody.
I'm back in Railway Modelling after about 20 years out of the hobby.
I have set up my Railway Room down in my basement. It's 21 ft x 9ft.Here is a link to some photos of the base board construction phase taken in January 2008.There is still a large terminus to be build down the middle.

A lot of trackwork in now down & I will update photos when I get a chance. It's strange how despite being out of the hobby for such a long time how it all comes back to you very quickly.
Special thanks to Richard Johnson & others for help in wiring etc.I will be going DCC.
I bought an NCE Power Pro while on a visit to New York about 18months ago & it's only now I have got to use it.
Now the fun starts.

Its looking good Tony - I like the way you've used the whole wall height for backscene and the track plan looks full of interest too It'll really be good with that extra few feet to give the trains some extra room too! - keep the photo's coming and don't hesitate to ask if any questions crop up

Wouldn't mind having a room like that. Great stuff and the overall layout looks interesting.

Good to see the artist coming out on the walls.

Great fun to be had in building plus operating this layout

Keep the photos comiong and there are many tips in some of the topics in this forum for creating and finishing scenery

Hi Tony,

It looks great.

My only comment would be about the storage yard. At this early stage, I would be putting in as many tracks as you can, you will be surprised over time that you will never have enough!

Kind regards

Hi John.
I agree with you. You can never have enough storage. It is the one drawback with the plan. I may drop a gradient down the back somewhere & put some storage underneath.
