Thanks for the pictures, please send more, the more ideas the better any thing to keep me occupied for the next 18 months till I retire.
my last layout had an access of 40cm/16" between wall and layout.....if reach is a problem from the front . May be build away from the wall.ie a space for you to get to to reach from both sides
Actually if you can manage to build the baseboards pre layout build you can play around with different track layouts as time allows. We found this method worked very well on the Ruschbahn with 3 or 4 iterations of both the Station and Low Level Fiddle Yard before a happy compromise was reached. Would certainly suggest no baseboards much wider than 30 inches unless acess is available both sides then keep the 30 inch Block rule unless you intend to do some Pop Ups for access. However walk around and the narrower boards will stay the test of time as you grow older.I lay track by adding what ever fits next. I build the base work to suit. I do enjoy mucking around with these software packages but in the real world - I just cut and fit to close the loop. Bit different in a confined space, I agree.
