Hi to all, I am a relatively new modeller, starting about a year ago. To develop a hobby to do with my growing grandsons and into retirement, when it comes!

I am going to build a layout in my garage. I have a space approx 1.3m wide by up to 4m long to use, but I am starting with one 2.4m x1.2m plywood sheets as a beginning. I love the Gresley A4 s & have few Thomas engines for the kids (&me). I am originally a Londoner who came out to Australia as a teenager. Now live happily between Brisbane & the Gold Coast in Queensland.

Hi Futuresportz - welcome to the "club" !!!

Are you suggesting using a single sheet of ply for your layout - a sort of "table top" board ?

If so, you'll need access all round (unless you have very long arms .......) otherwise you won't be able to reach the back.  This is in fact, quite wasteful on space.  It would be much better up against a wall and narrower.

A great part of the world to live in - Liz's son lives in Brisbane and she goes out to see him every year (occasionally with me in tow ......)  I spent some very enjoyable days in Noosa a couple of years back.

Welcome.
Outside of this forum that has a lot of virtual modelling, there are many modellers of UK outline living in Australia & this Association has over 500 of them with many living in QLD

On edit, I see from one of your other posts, you are involved with a club - good, hands on is of help both ways.

THanks Sol, I am a member of the BRMA. Petermac - my son in law & I were thinking of mounting the 8x4 plywood (12mm) on wheels to be able to access all around it. At this stage we are waiting to have a block of time to build the supports for it. At the moment I have some track laid temporarily on the ply sheet so the grandkids can see some trains run at least. I still work full time & share the care of my chronically ill wife with one of my daughters.

A mobile board is a good idea - as is getting something up and running ASAP for the kids. :thumbs

Oh - nearly forgot - the LNER is the best idea I've heard in years ........................:mutley:cheers
