"Layout Plan Mark 1"

So here it is! Copley Hill Mark 1. Okay, it's not to scale, it hasn't got the sizes down (it's 9ft by 20ft the size I have to build it in, by the way), and it makes little or no sense that a train heading for the north east would suddenly about turn and go south west...and then north east again! but I have a plan, it involves using the carriage works as a suitable fiddle yard and storage facility (and hopefully, changeover facility too), and the yard itself is where all the action will be - locomotives moving back and forth, the turntable turning pacifics, tank engines shunting in the sidings...

Yes, it's a very rough draft. It is, however, a start, and I intend to gather as much advice and thoughts on it as possible amongst friends before the next draft.

Until next time - goodnight!
