One of my first layout contract jobs, is for Jon, a long time friend, hard core railfan, and Barcoola - Alice Springs stalwart operator.
Jon wanted this layout up and running fairly quickly, so I volunteered the Barcoola fiddle yard.
we set up the fiddle yard on the decking, so we did a bit of 1 to 1 size layout modelling.
From this, we figured where things should be and made changes to the design in short time.
We set up, sections of 30mm foam and this made it easy to position the whole layout in one go.
After all the sizes were established, with the help of the triton work bench, we cut all the wood required for the job in one day.
The "kits" are all positioned ready for construction.
