A germ of an idea has begun to form for my new railway (working title the RaGs = Rough as Guts which will give some idea of the prototype of which there isn't one).
This will be a freelance layout the same as my old railway whose equipment will be phoenixed to form this one. The upper level will contain a small HO dogbone shaped layout to give me some interest when the weather stops outdoor running.
It will initially be housed in a 6 Metres x 4 Metres shed but will expand out into the yard with a 15 Metres run out and back total 30 Metres.
The shed looks like a warzone at the moment as a result of a move of 1750Km a month ago.
I am using a 16Ftx20Ft indoor layout plan as a starting point but it will not be faithfully reproduced.
More pictures as work progresses.

That is the small shed. The other one is 7.5 Metres x 6 Metres which is where the "mancave is located along with the workshop.

That piece of rope is to grab to close the roller door when it is fully up, there are 3 more just hanging around in the other 3 doors ;) :)

Sounds like a great new start indeed and lots of space to grow. I am looking forward to see the updates on it!
Enjoy it!

I have resurrected an old thread which describes what I have to work with so I will move all activity re my new layout to it.
