I feel your pain Peter, such a huge expanse of land to keep clear of weeds. I wish I had some indoor space to do the same, I would have probably done it years ago. Good luck with it.

Progress today... probably doing more construction than thinking but the master plan is in the back if my mind.

Finally worked out how to do pictures instead of links. Why do they keep changing programs???

Thanks Clive, yes disappointed, (but the weeds were relentless once they got hold) in scrapping the idea but was fun while it lasted. Hopefully I will get some running this summer with a basic track plan and formulate my ideas along the way.

Lot´s of space here. If you can bring your heart to it I would think about making the space in the middle accessible without crawling under the line, by for example using a bridge to cross the gap instead of "paving it over". If you´re going to have "emergency access points" (to rescue things, for example), then keep them wide enough for your shoulders to get through, but small enough to lift the "lids" from below. I speak as someone who has should have known better  Shocked P.S. Bridges in alumnium rather than steel also keep tennis elbow at bay  Rolling Eyes

Thanks. I have made several bridges in aluminium a great material for them, a very good point about the access point and not crawling under, as the years tick by relentlessly.



I am trying to work out how best to do that but wanting a continuous run and to use up as much of my track as I can, may make that difficult

Good luck. Looking forward to seeing the next steps. See my comments on the K&NWLR on the "progress" thread.

Thanks for the info I have re considered the access so will make a few adjustments. My 'upper level' will now consist of an end to end shuttle without any attempt to gain rail access to the lower level, I am running on Massoth and have a track sensing unit so should be able to make it automatic, just running in the background. I will post a plan of the basic baseboard when I can work our how to do it.

As granddaughter is visiting (2 1/2) the trains had to be made to run.



Having bitten the bullet to move indoors, I have started lifting the out door track, I had seriously forgotten haw much track there was out there.

I have been away for a long weekend so not much progress. I think the area is going to be a little small but I managed to rescue the engine shed from the garden and the turntable, Both need a little bit of work I hope to incorporate both.

I see space to extend that viaduct on the upper loop (you could use some more of the track :-)

Yes that will extend through the plastic wall to storage so I can run a shuttle on the upper track, and the lower level will go over a bridge to a storage loop in the adjacent room. I am sure I will fit sufficient in but may have quite a few meters of track over not to mention points. Smile

Any left over track welcome down South  bounce 

Perhaps Van and I could join our tracks between Le Dorat and Le Lindois Laughing

I am working on the 'Plonk it and see haw it fits' principal in sorting out the track plan for the indoor setup.


Typically un prototypical it’s going to be a twin track loop ( got to use up some of the track) I can’t decide as to whether or not to remove the white wall.

Remove the white wall as "extend beyond where white wall was"?

Well it’s either remove it or have three tunnel entrances, but it does offer extra protection for rolling stock when it’s all on the storage sidings.

The Barn isn’t to secure and I understand French insurance companies won’t cover anything secured with a padlock it has to be a mortise lock.

 lol!
 A mortise lock on a sliding door confused
 
I have just managed to reclaim all the track from the garden undergrowth I had forgotten I had 10 lengths of 3mt long lengths of track.

I am going to utilise some of the rack track I have to run from the station to the upper level.

Perhaps a pic tomorrow

A sliding door with some kind of mortice lock is apparently acceptable .... but I don´t have a barn, and the current Mrs K&WNLR is against me buying one, more´s the shame. See your point. Looking forward to the pics  Surprised
