As can be seen from the photos, the layout room is coming along nicely. The room is basically a room within a shed & as the layout is located in an area with extremes of temperature, every effort is being made to insulate wherever possible.
Of interest is the garden area in front of the shed which was a part of the home to the G Gauge Narrow Gauge "Empire"
The opportunity was also taken to incorporate a mezzanine storage shelf 1200mm wide in the gap between the layout room ceiling & shed roof for the entire 12 metre length.
The layout benching was quickly decided upon while the ability for labour was on site.... It is at a height of around 1350mm high & while boring and flat.....It will provide a basis for adding & subtracting a bit here & a bit there so i have above & below track scenery.
