New Layout .
Originally built as a continuous run, it was compromised by curved points-something which couldn't be altered due to the space available. I will only build layouts which fit the railway room, the back of my Focus Estate, andis easily managed for movement.
The layout is 7ft long by 4ft 4ins and will be in a U shape, terminus to fiddle yard. Again a South Devon location as I don't want to have to build more stock.
I have a kit by Heljan of Teignmouth Station which will be the main building-it scales at exact 3mm not the OO/Ho as described. The only thing missing is the fiddle yard which cannot be added with 'Hennock' in place.
The only thing is the name-two are possibles, Canonteign or Teignford. The latter is favourite as I have insufficient letters to make the former on its running in board.
