    A week to build? Is that 8 hours a day 1 hour lunch?
    Seriously though, that is one impressive bit of kit!

    A week? In your dreams!
    Might be a week for eight people!
    It will take a fortnight just to paint it, not to mention about £100's worth of paint! :avatar:

    If you had a solid week ( not just an hour here and there) this kit could be done. It could be quicker but allowing for sub assembly drying time etc. The instructions are pretty good. A little preparation grouping sub assembly parts prior to starting and a bit of a dry run here and there and you'd be on your way.

    Building it on a stop and start basis is a different story. The goods shed build will give a better feel for it as it's also quite involved.

    Cheers

    Just bringing this thread back from the depths as this shed will be the one used in my next attempt at a build. As mentioned before ..... not Scottish ... but there again, half the locus that may feature on it are probably every bit as much unlikely as well.

    Regardless, it would look good with a nice variety of loco types outside it.

    Ian I think Toto has purchased a second hand push along cart for Dundee to transport this marvelous new addition to venues in when its ready, Dundee being the willing motive power of course. All I can say is thank goodness I live in Yorkshire ! :avatar::avatar::avatar:
