A brief introduction to my layout. I retired at the end of 2018 and with now having the time available I could start on my model railway, the first one since I was a teenager. As we don’t use the garage for the car, the other half agreed that I could convert it and build my layout there. I started with removing the garage door, blocking the opening, clad the outside so it still looks like a door, insulated the interior walls, plasterboarded then emulsioned. The old roof was replaced with industrial style cladding then insulated inside. I installed two 5ft LED battens that I suspended from the ceiling so I can alter the height to get the most effective lighting.
I started by building the framework.
The layout is 4.1mts x 2.1mtrs with a central walkway.
