This all started with buying a little English Switcher and now I'm building a shelf layout with a station and a switching area. So as this is about the layout not the switcher I have started a new thread.
I have chosen Ely in Cambridgeshire England because it is a delightful part of England and having visited and will again because my sister and family live there.
After many many hours using google earth to figure out the topography and foreshortening the scene to fit on an available shelf, I have arrived at the best compromise.
The layout consists of two mainlines that coming from the right pass over the Great Ouse river and immediately the lower line divides and divides again giving amble chance for switching. The 2 main lines and a 3rd go to Ely station.
I hope you enjoy this little build.
Plan attached and build photos as I go.
