Firstly I’d like to say how much I enjoy all the tips from your subscribers and seeing their work.
I started my layout two years ago this month on the premise that it would be a “pocket money layout” so everything is either scratch built or used/repaired.
It measures about 15 feet by 5 and is built on two dining tables which I got from a charity shop for £5 each and covered in MDF offcuts from a local joiner. The photos show how far I have got so far (still a lot to do) and I hope they show what can be achieved on a budget.
I have spent between three and four hundred pounds to this point (less than £5 per week) and the enjoyment I have had far surpasses the expenditure.
I hope you like what I have done, as I not a purist by any means!
Thanks again for all the ongoing tips and info

A huge thank you to Andrew. It just goes to show, you can build a layout on a shoe string budget… though once you’re bitten by the bug…
That’s all this time folks.
Please do keep ’em coming.
And don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide if Andrew has got you thinking. It’s full of money saving tips.
