A simple model railway train set style layout I have been working on in my garage recently. The baseboard is mounted on a pulley system attached to beams on the garage roof, so can easily be hoisted up and stored away when not in use.
The layout started life as the 2002 Hornby GWR mixed traffic set I received as a child. After spending 13 years in storage, I rediscovered the filthy track and baseboard, as well as some old Hornby plastic buildings when moving house and decided to rebuild the layout whilst back from university on a limited budget.
Although the layout isn’t exactly packed with operational potential, it has been great for trying out some different modelling techniques such as creating hills, trees, ballasting, weathering and more. It was also fairly inexpensive, as most of the locomotives and rolling stock were second hand, as well as some of the scenery.
Despite the simplicity and lack of realism of this style of layout, they are great for anyone with limited space, or someone just getting into the hobby like myself, before moving onto something larger.
