    A mate of mine is trying to talk me into building a small winter 009 layout as he is doing the same. My summer layout lives out in a cold UK garage and he has suggested we build our layouts in such a way we can put them together for joint sessions.
    This is loosely based on York gas works which was mostly standard gauge. There are a couple of joining points should anyone feel a need to extend the layout in some way or other.

    Looks like an interesting project will follow your progress

    Being able to join up and expand the layout with your friend and the smaller size could lead to some exhibiting at shows etc

    What a brill idea for a layout. 4mm scale gives chunky sizeable buildings, 009 gives tight curves to make most use of the space available, and for me- no slate!!! :giggle::giggle:

    Cheer's, Pete.

    Had an e-mail from my mate (Nick) - he loves this plan and has adapted it to 5x2 and is already building it. Man of action!

    You'll need to get him on board with us so we can watch both modules progressing. That would be great. :thumbs:

    Have you seen the new Gasometer from Gaugemaster in 4mm? Stands about 7" tall, £19.95.

    I will certainly see if I can get him to sign up. Mind you the rate he's going he might be finished by next weekend! I've just bought some new wagons for Wallace Creek (and have my eye on some new Auscision ones and another 48 Class) so I am not sure when (or even if) my section will get going....limited funds, Xmas coming up, drink problem (lack of in house) whinge whinge whinge etc etc
