Short on space for your model railroad?
Do what Patrick has done – another clever way around the thorny issue of space:
“Here is what I have done as a result of lack of space.
I built up a hospital bed frame to support my set in my garage.
I can move and level as I like.
9′ x 4′ Working on a southwestern US layout.
And now on to Terry.
He’s been scratching his head over his track plan. Can anyone help?
“Alistair: I’m hoping that someone in the group with a little time can take a look at my track plan and tell me if and where a return loop exist.
The colored tracks are all ready built and work fine and don’t make a return loop, it’s the yard tracks in outline form on the right side of the picture that I’m concerned about.
At first glance it might look like a return loop in places but if I’m right and you follow the tracks throughout the layout I think I’m ok.
Appreciate previous help from your members and hope they can point out my mistakes.

And lastly, Dangerous Dave has been busy again:
“Hi Al, just posted this video, no changes as such, got a problem on upper level due to some movement with the baseboard material used, this is something I shall have to remedy with new boarding fitted.
I then show footage of running session, captured with 2 different Mini cams, and also from my trusted Panasonic Camcorder… better weather seems to be arriving here in Uk, so not as much time spent in the loft (can get very warm up there ), but will post the odd video from time to time .
All the best to you and all the Members
