    Evening this has been an idea for a while now. Today I bought a 600mm x 90mm floating shelf ideal for a photo plank/test track.
    Tomorrow I should receive my Peco setrack for this build. The theme of the layout will be based around diesel locomotives which I have a great passion for.
    I hope to post some pictures tomorrow once the track has been laid.

    MalcT thanks for your interest. The track has been fitted to the floating shelf along with part of a platform area. Happy with the way the layout is looking. I have taken a picture of the progress.

    Thanks Toto it’s nice to add little bits of detail such as electrical boxes to a layout.

    Today I have been weathering the platform area and the walled sections. Over the coming week I hoping to add the cable trunking and start to lay some ground cover and ballast.
    A picture of today’s progress.
