New Lego Room
Finally we have built a new room to house our next layout as well as more organised storage and workspace. These bookshelves contain a large portion of our parts, somewhat organised into drawers and compartment boxes, as well as spare 9V track and motors. The new layout will be behind the tall bookshelves, consisting of a rectangle around 4.9 x 2.4 metres in total area (185 baseplates). I have to share some of the glory with my dear wife Kas Klinger (look her up)
About this creation

One side of the new corner desk with town stuff ready for placement. The bookshelf also holds more parts in plastic crates.









The window sill holds the tools that were used to build the 'some-assembly-required' bookshelves. This shelf holds parts, base plates and other random pieces. Oh, and some of my trains on display - standard, modified and custom. It was great to finally have the space to set up my complete Santa Fe train with it's custom B-unit and dome car. Stay tuned for an updated Emerald Night.









Another view of the shelf and trains. I still have another half-dozen or so trains to build, but some will of course sit on the new layout so display space shouldn't be a problem.








The next four photos are of the old layout under construction (note - does not exist any more). It was 3.6 x 2.0 metres in size and had a town and rail system. The tracks formed three complete loops - one large outer, one inside that cut through and around the farming area, and one small loop around the town. They were all linked up with switches, so one train could have access to any part of the tracks.


This is a general overview showing the railyards in the foreground, future farming in the middle and town in the background.









Train Shed in the foreground with as many sidings as I could cram in. All linked up to the rest of the tracks.









The town consists of Market Street, Greengrocer and Cafe Corner (modified with an extra story), as well as a monorail running around the town. My wife and I built the church together, and future photos will reveal the detailed interior e.g. pipe organ and altar.









Another view of the railyards. Fortunately we have heaps of 9V track which will come in handy for the new layout.

so many tubs, my oh my! I think someday my collection might be within 2 orders of magnitude of this quantity, but I'd have to start dis-assembling my towers to get there. Do you have a bricklink store or sumpin'
