Here are my 2 new box-file layouts in 4mm. The first one is a dock scene with an operating Airfix crane (Maerklin crane kit-bash with separate digital controller) and Bilteezi warehouses, the second is a street scene with Langley houses and a railway halt.

Both box-files (and the ones to be built in the future) are connected with short pieces of track on railway arches. Track are Peco Code 100.

DCC controller is a Lenz LZ100 with a Hornby booster and a Lenz LH100 hand-held controller.

Both box-files can easily  be closed for storage.  The layout is easy to transport and set up.

    Great little layouts, it is amazing what can be done in such a small amount of space.

    Brilliant layouts I built a basic one a few years back and keep meaning to give it another go, after seeing yours it’s back on the list 🙂

    Great layout. Gives me a lot to think about. I don’t have much space but looking at your layout you don’t need much space.

    Wow, these look amazing. I am currently building the Boxfile Industrial Layout from Scalescenes, but it is taking some time to complete. Thanks for sharing your modelling.
