This rambling blog is about building a couple of simple layouts in HO, the available space is rather small but the prototype was not built on the grand scale, most rural stations were merely a curved loop and a siding, which is easy to replicate.

Destruction and re-birth
OK, what's going on? This is supposed to be a blog about a nice Southern Region layout?
Well, I decided that I wanted to return to what I enjoyed and any further prevacation was wasting valuable time and over a weekend the layout was stripped, the stock sold off...........a new start.
The strip-down has begun, an old bread-knife and wallpaper steamer are the main tools to reduce the layout to bare boards.
The next job is to allow the baseboards to dry, then fill and sand to a flat surface.
Changes will be:-
1. New track plan 2. British Railways SReg replaced by a German HO layout.
