So here goes. My focus is pre-grouping and private owner, so the main stock will be a couple of ex-LBSC Terriers, an SECR P and a couple of private industrial types. Plenty of 4 wheel wagons to shunt them around.
The track plan is a Timesaver and has been worked out accordingly. I have deliberatly made the central running line straight so the module can accomodate longer stock when joined to other layouts.
The pointwork is 48" radius, the control will be my own hybrid DCC/DC box which is also in progress. This has been designed to allow me to control either layout in either DC or DCC mode. Points will be Tortoise powered. The control input to this module will be fully isolating to make joining other modules easier (a fancy way of saying i'll include an on/off switch for the controller!).
The 8'x18" folding board is 75% finished and I've got most of the components ready to start. Photos will follow in a couple of weeks when more progress is made.
Oh, and an impulse purchase of an L&M Transporter wagon, plus a fab holiday in Austria, has lead to the inclusion of the narrow gauge spur at the bottom. A special joining section will be included so this can still be used when joined to other modules.
