That's very neat;y done, Dave. I've a similar idea for scenery on my layout, scenic "flats" of hills and cuttings.

I've been using lockdown to spend some time revamping my shed, to have a circuit around the shed, with a removeable section in front of the door. I took the opportunity to redecorate the interior as well, and to replace incandescent buld lighting with LED strip lights. Baseboards are 9mm ply on 20mmx70mm softwood frame.

Part of the loop passes though a storage unit...

...with lift out section removed. My intention is to make it hinged once I have decided on a track layout.

Inevitable collection of red boxes. Supports are stud wall timber 34mmx68mm which is currently selling at Wickes for £3 for 2.4m length.

Latest indoor layout plan (300mm squares). Vague representation of Grunburg on the Austrian narrow gauge Steytalbahn pre-OGEG days. All curves and points are LGB R1 unless otherwise indicated, and all straights are 600mm, 300mm or 150mm unless otherwise indicated. 320mm, 280mm and 160mm are PIKO track. Track is all laid, next job is wiring in the points and adding the signalling. The points will be DCC controlled but I'm thinking of adding a "ground frame" at the station with switches to trigger the points and signals as well. Such a ground frame does exist but it was installed when OGEG took over running the line as a Museumbahn.

I am beginning to come down on the side of conspiracy theory, and that this shed and layout does not exist.

Nobody's shed can be that neat and tidy :shake::shake::shake::shake::shake:

Two points: 1 - I had to empty the shed to redecorate it and 2 - you haven't see the real garden shed behind the rear wall!
