This is my little model railway, a 00-gauge layout just four feet by two. It has some pretty vicious tight curves, but with fully electrified points and plenty of decoupling sites it's great fun for shunting with a small loco. My main aim was just to get some practice in making cardboard buildings and landscaping. It was all great fun, but now I struggle to find the space for even this small layout. The lovely maroon loco has now been drabbed down into BR black, just to keep the pedants happy!
