Well I have decided my layout and am trying to get the wood so I can start the Bench work but I still have yet to buy Thomas and friends trains and I have yet to get a list together, but I have a single question to ask is buying Tidmouth sheds worth the 200 dollars it would take to buy it or should I just do something else

Personally, I would say no on that. While Tidmouth Sheds is nice, (I do not own it though!) It doesn't seem too great. You could always build your own with wood/paper/paint etc. It's your decision to make.

I got another train set in the mail today and it was an older Bachmann not Thomas obviously so I now have 4 engines one is broken so I have to fix it and it is going to run on another layout so I might get Thomas Annie and Clarabel just because however I am making a custom one with the Turntable that Bachmann Produces.

I've made a few more advances on my layout.

I rearranged the sidings as I felt the original set-up looked cramped:



Also, I have set down these gray sheets that will be the foundation of the town behind Tidmouth Sheds

Well, I didn't mean the kit itself, what I mean't is it could be fit inside a turnaround loop nicely (although, come to think of it, I'd like to see someone scratch build the sheds)  Roll Eyes

My Layout is named after a fictional place and isn't used on any shows, books, or movies so I might just do a lot of customs

Sheesh.  I wish I could hurry up and Graduate!  I'm in grade 11...so one more year to go.  Grade 12 should be fun, trying to balance work at Thrifty's with my studies. 

And, does anyone have ideas for a layout in a very small space?  I have all the things I'd need to build a layout,  I just need to figure out how it will happen....

College is not exactly better than high school as far as the workload goes.  I made the mistake of taking 16 credits this quarter at my school and it is limiting my free time, which includes layout work. Roll Eyes

Anyways I recently got a bandai model of George the Steamroller from Japan.  I'll be more than happy to share some photos of the model as well as the layout in general.  I have not had much time to do any layout work, but I will get around to it soon, since I've been meaning to share layout photos with everyone for some time now.
