QUOTE (terrya @ 10 Sep 2008, 10:35) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>Hi to all
I am completely new to the hobby and seek some basic advice.
I will be starting my first model raiway layout in OO scale and it will be going in an aluminium porta cabin in the garden.
The outside dimensions of this cabin are 18ft X 7`6".
I would appreciate any advice on baseboard design for the inside which will give me the maximum amount of track space for future development.
The door leading in is on the end facing down the length of the room and is positioned on the right side.
All electrical points are fitted and heating is installed.
I would like to have a `show track` around the side which would give me the oppertunity of runnig an express on the maximum amount of track.
Everything else could be inside use with some room for scenery and effects etc.

Does anyone have any baseboard layout ideas please


Here is a plan I'm building at the moment. Its for 15ft x 9ft but i'm sure it could be adapted to fit your size. It's an old C J Freezer plan. He has several books of plans available.
