  1. well board 3 is probably one with more to update on , basically when i acquired the layout there was a board about 16x26 in length which was technically board 4 but due to its size and of the damage it had received it seemed a better idea to permanently bolt it and attache to board 3 , of course would extend the length of that board but it would reduce amount of board joins and trying to look after an additional board which had more chance of being damaged and knocked about so plan one was to bolt board 4 and 3 together using the bolts layout came with and then gluing them
  2. Been a few weeks since last update so thought i would show what has happened to all those dropper wires i was preparing on my desk. well i managed to install the extra droppers i needed to install on the back fiddle yard , as you can see i got myself set up at home in the spare room so that progress wasn't halted after the closure of the local club and also with the bad weather wanted to be back inside rather then out in the shed i have now installed a central bus for the roads and sidings on board one and have droppers on all bits of track to improve the reliability of the
  3. Not much to report but whilst been on my lunch break at work have been prepping up the rest of the droppers for wiring the track up , got a few looks at work . spent 2 hours at home last night tinning them aswell here is another photo of some of the repairs i have started for some of the buildings and stock

  5. please find attached layout thread will try keep updated how we are getting on with the restoration and updating Mark

After sorting and arranging a pick up i managed to get layout back down to Southampton from Pontefract ,the advantages of having family estate car :-) we managed to arrange a work day at our club so we could have the layout up all together and start
  7. awesome , i'm just looking into possibility if i can collect it , just sorting logistics like you said would a great shame to be broken up and would be great to restore it we have done this with another 009 layout we picked up a couple of years ago any ideas on the wiring and points underneath at all?
