About this blog

This is a blog of my return to model railways. I'm in my late 30s but had a railway when I was a child and finally I can get back to it. Its pretty much gwr, not based on anything real and just for fun. It's a 16x9 foot around the attic layout. When I'm more experienced and skilled at modelling I'll make it more realistic.

So more track. I found that my new Hornby king class doesn't like tight radius curves and my even newer haljen 4700 is even worse so I've got 2 loops (started with one 3rd radius loop). The 4th radius loop works much better and smoother. I've also changed to peco streamline points which look much more realistic and don't cause as many derailments.  I've also started building metcalfe buildings for some practise as id like to scratch build one day.  I'd like to put photos up but cannot

So I started out lining my garage attic with boards. They are 1.5 ft above ground. I used attic flooring from wickes as the attic is very very dry and they were cheap. Once the basic frames and boards were put up I lined it with some track. At the moment I only have 2 loops and some sidings. I'm still working on my track plan.  Where the line goes into the arch sections of the roof I'll make a removable tunnel.
