Now that I have almost finished a rather large lot of O Gauge Loco numbering and weathering, my thoughts turn to ‘what next’. Yesterday I made up two 900mm x 400mm laser cut baseboards, I then joined them with wooden dowels and PVA to make one permanent layout 1800mm x 400mm. I also have ‘in hand’ a 1200mm x 400mm laser cut, made up layout which has a small sector plate attached.
I am now looking at various options for two layouts, one 1800mm x 400mm and one 1200mm x 400mm. Another possibility is to amalgamate both baseboards together and make one layout 3000mm x 400mm.
Smaller board options are:-
Diesel Depot in OO — Steam Shed in OO
Dual board options are:-
Engineers Yard in OO — Early Diesel Depot in O Gauge.
Yesterday I also received a parcel containing two laser cut kits for 1200mm x 900mm boards. This will make a two part layout size 2400mm x 900mm. This is planned to be a made into a N Gauge Layout primarily for my Son, but also to add an N Gauge capability for our Group.
