Creating the Track Plan

The Track Plan.

In reality the track plan was worked on over many weeks before we ordered the baseboard kit.

When the kit was available it was a good idea to draw the plan full size on the baseboards before assembly. Using the full size drawings of the Peco points we were using we were able to move the points to miss the baseboard structure below and to make sure any radius used on the track plan was to too tight.


St Peters Square - The Beggining

St Peters Square

This blog will show the construction of a new Model Railway by the two remaining members of the Laindon Model Railway Group, Roger Hobson and Perry Andrews.

The layout was named after former member and my father Peter Andrews who sadly passed away in 1997.

May 2018 - Construction begins.


We decided on a kit for the baseboard to enable a quicker construction. The design is the same as we used for previous layouts using ply all round for lightness and strength. The kit is laser cut with accurate joints. The picture shows the kit assembled but without glue or screws and shows how good the joins are.
