Oh no! Not another Blog!

By Richard Benn

Oh yes!

The newest area group in the Association has decided it would be fun to write about what we are doing for the benefit (or amusement) of others.

I am building a small layout for the Golden Jubilee Layout Challenge. The base boards have been built from foam board and I am close to completing the track for the first of the three boards.

This is the track plan:

The layout depicts the Isle of Selmesey Railway in its earliest days when it was merely a goods line that ran from the port at Inchaven to the Town of Michelford.


  1. The idea of an imaginary light railway is very close to my heart - keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more as the project unfolds

  2. Welcome to the world of 2mm scale Blogs Richard and also to the GJLC. Your layout plan looks impressive, how big is it, or are you saving this info. for a future posting?

  3. Thanks for the kind words.

    Each board is 40" long by a mere 8" wide. I would have liked it to be wider but lack of space precluded this.

    I am going to post more information on the blog. A post covering the construction of the baseboards is in preparation and should appear later this week.
