This is becoming, well not a bind, but I do want to get it finished without it dragging. Essentially it's a larger version of Garn at 1' x45" or if you could read the writing ( if Google hadn't insisted on putting the photo upside down) 1,140 x 305mm. Nothing startling so far, the basic stock roster of one coach, one loco, one wagon, one railcar is done plus all the buildings and here a basic Gammon End track layout has been formed on the usual bomb-proof 6mm MDF carpentry.
I was gong to put the point control switches at the rear as in recent builds, but Nigel whispered in my ear about it possibly becoming the start point for a 'round the room' plan. Not sure about that, but if I did, then putting controls at the rear would be a no no. And anyway Garn worked fine at shows with the controls dumped in the front of the board as shown here.
