The plank!!






Well, there it is, The Plank!

and

The Plank with track plan.

At this end of the layout I cannot decide on how the cottage / road / land contours will look, so the front profile board will be cut later. I also need to decide on the height of the layout so that I can start to construct the supporting frame/legs, but at least I am at the point where serious thought can be applied to track laying. Just need a little tweak here and there on the track plan and things will start to get interesting.

Looking great, Yan. The woodwork is to a very high standard...with this kind of beginning, the model will be something to look forward to!

Very nice. I do like the curve of the trackwork. It looks very prototypical, and gives a spacious look as well.

Nice work!! Height? Nice and high with a boxed in diorama approach? Maybe 4ft 3"?

Thanks for the comments, I hope I can do them justice.

I like the look of 4ft 3" as height of track bed. For myself, as I'm 6ft+, it's the higher the better but with a partner at 5ft 2" I'm being otherwise convinced.......
