'I was thinking; we've got 2x Christmas trees, if we put one in the living room and one in the conservatory than you could put an LGB track around each of them and have 2x running.'           

 

Who are you? And what have you done with my wife....

I think you’ve missed a trick though. 
 

with a tree in the living room and the conservatory coul you not have loop round each with tracks in between going round the rest of the downstairs have a real Santa express through your house.

 

pu wagon on the back  that can safely transport mrs s g favourite drink around for delivery and you should have her onside

The thought did cross my mind. Having to shut certain doors because of the dog makes that not work though. Decided we're just going to put LGB round the tree in the conservatory as there's a lot more space, so I'll get creative :)

Workshop has walls, roof, doors... kinda lack insulation and I'm missing a part to fit all the power sockets properly so it's a bit nippy out there at the moment. I don't plan on doing any ground works for the railway over the winter, but I'm under instruction to dig a bigger pond when the weather gets better so I'll probably tie in the first loop of garden railway with that work.

It's now December so this is acceptable ;)

 

I had such big plans for this years Christmas layout; there was going to be an r2 oval outside of a R1 figure 8, 2 trains running... then found the space allocated was going to be too small :( ah well.

Ok, so it wasn't the most adventurous of Christmas layout designs, but the shape seems to work with the tree and presents now set up.

A big thank you to @Adrian Stevenson for sending a dozen lengths of flexi rail via the 'free to good home' section of the forum, they turned up earlier today :) Despite it being near Christmas, the wife is refusing to wrap them for some unknown reason.

 

I should have more than enough track now to get a loop of the garden done when the weather improves...

...Well, I say a loop of the garden; chatting with a friend a few days ago I mentioned I'd like to finally get it running this coming summer, and the wife's response was 'we'll see' so I don't know what else she has in mind for this coming year :(

 

Merry Christmas all.
