Hi all, it's been a few months since my last post. Firstly the update on Coorah is that I've stopped working on this layout as I've found i made several mistakes which i have learnt from and will remember for the next layout, such as peco set track switches, too small for 12 wheeled engines such as B class' and such. Also, not using cork underlay.

Though it was sad to scrap all the work I have done, i've gotten into the module idea for layouts. At the moment i have a module which is roughly 1.5 metres long plus an extended fiddle yard which is roughly 60 CM long, the idea was to make a compact shelf layout with a VR scene. I'm struggling to find a track design to suit this, shunting/switching layouts are good but i wanted something more prototypical, which i've found extremely difficult to create in the amount of space i have and as a result it is causing me loads of stress, and i am sometimes questioning the thought of even having a layout.

I hope this isn't the end of modelling for me as i love model trains. If you have any ideas feel free to drop a comment below.

Regards, Alex.
