Well, after 7 hours worth of cleaning and 2 trips to the tip getting rid of old cardboard boxes, I’ve now got a cleared loft. Over the last few days this has been transformed into a railway room! I’m lucky in that the room already has walls and is carpeted, so all the hard work is done.
All my modelling materials and books have been moved up there. It’s a comfortable environment to work in, and provides a good space to put the whole layout up. All the boards have been test fitted through the loft hatch and in the back of my Golf. I was expecting the layout to require van hire from day 1 to get to exhibition, so to see that I can fit it in the car is great!
After a visit to ExpoNG this weekend I’ll hopefully be going to B&Q to pick out some plywood to begin baseboard construction. A week or so to mull ideas over before starting will help me work out any bugs with the plan in my mind before starting.
