Hi,
Although I live in a large house the loft which is used for storage is the most likely place I can use for a layout.
I am considering a very large flat door as a base which has been used as a table up there for many years. Although I can see from the magazines, track books and forums etc. I could constrain my layout to this area approx 2 x 1 metres but I was thinking of running track around the eaves but there is a height difference at the only useable height in the roof of 250mm. What would be a safe rate of rise, for loco, controllers etc. to lift a train from the door to the roof loop without doing damage to either pieces of equipment. Raising the door / table would elimanate the problem but I don't think the layout would be at a sensible viewing or operable height.

Thanks for the replies I think a sensible solution as you indicate would be to double the existing board area. I will need to clear the centre of the loft I think and plan a level layout. The planning will be interesting, the just clearing the centre of the loft sounds easy but.

Thanks again for the advice.
