new layout

So, not only are you building a half sized Maeve [in time for Christmas], but the smokebox door is going to have a circular layout inside it! Clearly solves the problem of how to fit the Maeve model in the garden - presume it will be mounted vertically, so when the smokebox door is swung open, the layout is ready to operate? Still track and 'Magnadhesian' to stop the trains falling off when in store too?

Is that a gauntlet being thrown I see? At half scale, will be 'only' around 10 metres long, with 1 metre diameter drivers, sitting on 2'7.5" track...

Local timber merchants may already be considering exotic foreign holidays!

 

I remember hearing of a chap that made a big wooden thing like that once, but he used gopher wood.

 

Never been sure what happened to it..
