A new layout

I said in my previous post that I'd not built a layout, but I found this draft post from almost a year ago with a completed layout. It might not be the usual toy trains but it was fun to build and I was pleased enough with the design to take a photo.  It can either be an inverted figure of eight or two ovals linked by a scissor crossover.  The advantage of wooden trains is that I don't need to work out where to put isolating rail joiners!

It was a relaxing way to spend a cold Sunday afternoon with my children, which is a better way of spending it than getting frustrated with a kit I'm trying to build.

The worrying thing is much of my modelling seems to be like this at the moment! But then again, a little boy who wants to play, watch and visit trains, I shouldn't really complain!

Looks like you had good fun!

I used to love playing with this when my kids were small. The kids enjoyed the construction and thinking up different layouts while I would ..er...play trains...you never really grow up, do you!
