Started this layout in the loft in 2016. A 4 foot x 2 foot scenic area with a 4 foot fiddle yard each side. The scenic area will be a station with passing loop, goods yard, engine shed with turntable. It will also have overhead wires on the mainline and 3rd rail,  on the branch, so anything can run.. 80% complete as of November 2018.
