    Whilst cleaning up the railway room and the back sun room, I found some old track in a box, two Peco medium left hand points (SL-96) and one Peco 3-way point (SL-99) and I have the old baseboard left over from my first attempt at my layout Tomlins Creek. This baseboard I have measures 11" x 60", so I thought I'd play around on Anyrail 6 tonight to see what I could come up with.

    After measuring up a few wagons (SDS Milk Tankers, SDS UHG, Silvermaz TRC, Traino 48 Class), I came up with this track plan below for a small milk depot...

    Now with two more milk tankers, and another TRC or MRC refrigerated van, this could be fun to shunt around. The only extra needed would be a detachable fiddle stick.

    One good thing about the size is that it can be set up on an ironing board !

    This could become a nice little 'lock down challenge' or 'whilst I'm not working' layout, although I do have to work on my main layout.., but this would be fun to build.... ;);)

    The track plan has measurements on it so I could transfer this to the baseboard to get a feel for layout...


    Threw the plan into paint and added some features...


    A mock up of how it looks and gives me a general impression of the buildings...


    Looking down from above. I even place the wagons and loco in position as shown in the second diagram !


    Will I build it ?? :scratchchin: I guess time will tell and be the answer to that ! :thumbs:

    Cheers, Gary.
