It's not easy showing layouts on this forum. You have to download the pictures onto something like photobucket and then post a link, hardly worth the trouble in my view. There are other forums where you can post pictures. Modelrailwayforum is one.

Hear-hear WTD - time Hornby Forums gave us the facility to post pictures/diagrams. I'm sure it would add value to the experience and better help contributors.
At present I have load my pix/diags onto another railway

modelling website and link to them from here as required.

Back to the OP.
Here's a pic of part of my old roundy-round layout prior to being redone as an L-shaped end to end (nowhere near as good but it takes up a lot less room).

I'll

take some pix of it now and post later.

Looks good RAF96. I take it that it's based on Wendover international station prior to it being closed to build London's new airport.

More or less WTD - until that fake WWII bomb was found in 1962.
As shown it was based on how much track I could pack into a given area. There just wasn't enough platform length or logical train arrival/departure possible - each train had to stop and

reverse into the station, so it had to go. It also took over 90% of the floor space and I needed the room for other stuff as well as trains.

Was a 12ft x 6ft x 8ft folded figure of 8 continuous run in a U-Shape, but it took up too much floor space so I had to redesign to this 12 ft x 6 ft L-Shape in 4 x 4ft x 2ft modules:

Not

as much fun to watch as a continuous run but OK for now operating under RM.

my problem is i have no interest in shunting trains into dead end sidigs. I have presently5 continuous tracks, plus 2 more dcc, plus tt and n gauge, so can run9 trains at once. Having just bought a TGV, now need a longer run, as these things really move,

and feel it makes sense to run it as designed. Dcc will allways be a tad restricted, as i have a big 3 rail layout, and do not wish to devalue, by converting to 2 rail. If you look at the forum under layout ,you will see a 50 foot layout. If that was continuous

my TGV would be in heaven, yelrow

TOTALLY AGREED

It would promote interest for Hornby promote more business, I am certain of that.

Come on Hornby you have done some really good things this last 6-12 months and images

speak more than words.

Win 10 - 64 bit, RM-Pro, eLink, 00 Gauge, TTS, Signals, Lighting. (LD hopeful). Should a forum reply refer to specialists, follow their guidance they give it for a reason! (UK) - Layout Gallery
