Having been modelling in 00 gauge for a number of years, the urge to have a go at 0 gauge has finally caught up with me in the form of a "Connoisseur Models" 02 tank loco, still sticking with the 'Southern', but each to his own. My 00 gauge layout is in the loft, but as no further space is available, a layout in my garage is the only option since Mrs M is a keen gardener and has ruled out a garden layout in any form. I'm not too bothered about that as a garden layout in the UK climate isn't something I'd be keen on anyway, so I'm going to make the best of a garage layout. It will be a 'U' shaped setup, down part of one side, across the back and return along part of t'other side, so an 'End-to-end' in fact. I replaced the entire garage roof last year as the Asbestolux roofing was starting to degrade and leak, so it was replaced by box profile plastic coated steel sheets with anti-condensation covering on the underside. While I was at it, I completely lined out the walls with OSB timber sheet (Oriented Strand Board) , painting this and the concrete floor to make it easier to keep clean, then invested in some of Lidl's 'knock-together' shelving, and this is now going to form the longer side of the layout. Lidl's competitor Aldi has currently some rather useful steel right angle brackets on offer, so 2 packs of each of the 2 sizes were bought, these are going to be used to attach sheets of 9mm 'Far-Eastern' (the hardwood type) of ply to the shelving tops.
