Hi Jimmy,

Looks really good. Double Inglenook with runaround. 6mm ply is about the minimum for stability. Those helices are really clever.

Dimensions for the research I'm doing? (l x w).

Nigel

Hi Nigel 
The entire layout is 72 inches long by 22 inches wide and the diameter of the helix is 17inches.

Hope this helps

Hi Jimmy,

Yes, many thanks. I was thinking it was around six feet based on the hearth. Eleven square feet makes it a small one. More grits to the mill.

Yes I built this one smaller than operation abyss as operation abyss is 8feet and is a pain to transport.

so my next project was the control panel, using the push buttons from dcc concepts. 
i had a quick look in my garage for a good bit of plastic, wood, metal basically anything i could use. 

i found a piece of old aircraft grade aluminium which i was given a while back, its kinda over the top but will do.

so not much has happened on this layout and when i say not much i mean nothing,

however i decided i have had enough of never being able to find anything i needed for modelling so i decided the way forward was to build a modelling bench, that i could easily bring in from the garage and take out again when the wife wanted the dining room back.

here is what i knocked up.





with a dual gauge test track

Hi Jimmy

In another life I am a wargamer (http://www.fightyourownbattles.co.uk) and really like layouts like yours where the two hobbies come together.  Its such an interesting idea and am really surprised more people dont do it (Rowlands Castle from memory is the only one??)

I look forward to piccys of progress.

Barry
