Well I managed to get some flex track today and eagerly ran tests. With the front truck and rear bogie removed the forney has no problem making 16" diameter curves. This should work out really well with the plans. Now to start building the base. Fun its been so long since I have had such cute little wee tracks in my hand.

Hi Ferd and Rob,
what a lovely conceptual layout, I can see shares in Scale Link going up as the sale of their etched plants goes stratospheric. I have put the #1 photo posted today up as my wallpaper,it is a beautiful  painting.indoor garden layouts in winter sounds a good idea, especially in the smaller gauges.
                                                        all the best,
                                                              Richard.

Hi Rob
You have a really great skill. Have you thought about publishing a book of railroad ideas. Your sketches are so inspiring and allow the viewer to interpret the layout in their own way. Very cool.
cheers Ferd
