Layout looks / looked significantly larger than I had originally pictured , you are in N gauge aren't you ?
Not much happened on Wallgate of recent times, it's taken me about 6 weeks trying to do the roof on Fyffes warehouse so far and even so I have achieved very little.
Unfortunately that seems to be the way at the moment and I'm not sure it's going to get much more productive than currently.
Not done yet though!

No priscus The layout is in a static caravan 30 ft by 13 ft Its where We go for holidays in the lakes, Without going into to much detail New owners of the site are increasing the site fees so much that People are leaving meaning we have fewer neighbors & where as I can spend time on the layout My Wife has lost a number of Friends Who She could talk to.

I need to get one of those.

Would need giant crane to lift it over house, and deposit in back garden.

That would solve my 'store-it-out' needs.

Two of them, and maybe I could start a model.

Originally I was building Wigan Central to West-Leigh & Bedford Stations, But due to having to demolish the original layout I decided to use a bit of modelers licence & just build whatever came to mind, I kept the names for the stations the same. The last station will be Bickershaw & Abram.

As I said before The fiddle yard loops had to be abandoned So the locos now have to be moved from the front of the train turned around & put on the
other end , Each track holds at least 7 coaches plus loco.

Layout well in progress. Just corking the main lines and will soon be tacking down.

Actually, the Q1 will be a visitor; most of my stuff is LMR based.

Another name for the Q1 was a Frankenstein.

Keep up the good work.

You need plenty of space and be single to show a large layout in the house( or have a large attic). Bloke near me uses his front bedroom and one of my mates uses all of his dining room. He had an extension built to make his kitchen into a kitchen /dinerexpensive for a train layout.
