Hi, I let my enthusiasm to post an update outrun the benefit of tidying up this post. I shouldn’t have let it go in the state that I did and I’m fixing it now.
- The location in the living room
- That I need the storage underneath for my books and magazines
- That I’ll likely be re-using the benchwork
With the layout’s styrofoam top gone I was left with a big open area. To help me to visualise the space and how things could be arranged within it I thought I’d tack down some corrugated cardboard over top. I can sketch directly on this surface, even place scenic elements and test their placement. Of course, I can move track sections around now too. Speaking of track sections, I’ve printed off another mess of turnout templates from the Fast Tracks website. These will be really useful to help me locate sidings and just general plan the feel of operations. I’ve been sticking to my “do something” plan and picking away just a little bit each day.
This pace feels great and fills the time nicely while I ponder greater architectural decisions.
