Begining of the end of the Old Layout.

Recommended Posts

At last made a start on dismantling the old layout in the Roof Space. I started it in 2009 but moved to the Shed Layout in 2012. I kept the loft layout to test run stock on DC but really that was only an excuse.

 

So I decided if I lifted the track then I would have no reason to keep it.

It took me months to build but an hour and a half to lift the track.

Looks a bit like the Derry Road.

I've still to disconnect the points motors.

Looks like some stock got marooned.

This is to remind myself I have to declutter.

Lovely layout Kirley - are there plans for a replacement up there?

 

No,I'm never putting up with those roof trusses again.

I had a layout in an attic some 30+ years ago and I hated it. I would never use it again. My current attic is huge - a cut roof with no internal bracing, all old tradition rafters on purlins. I could in theory build a massive layout but I wouldn't start.

Totally agree.

 

I had a large narrow gauge one in my first house - it got damaged by damp but the trusses were an awful impediment anyway.

 

Second house - gigantic open attic but money tight; in some 18 years I never even started a layout, but it would have been more than ideal.

 

Current house: trusses. Layout in garage or nothing.

Looks like 1960's Ireland with lines and stations being closed, Onwards and upwards as you have already shown elsewhere Kieran.:dig:
