Quote from: madharry on October 02, 2021, 11:28:57 AMA few years ago I started on the limited edition kit Caldwell Junction. I also scratch-built the follow-up kit the Engine House at Caldwell Junction. Having completed all the main buildings I have decided to try and turn this into an interesting diorama/layout that I can take to exhibitions. When scratching the engine house I reversed the layout of the buildings from the original kit. This now fits in more with the diorama I am planning. The site plan for Caldwell Junction was laid out by Doug on a space measuring 13 inches by 24 inches. I have built two light weight boards measuring 16 inches by 3ft giving me a 6ft run. The original site plan called for east and west bound tracks running through the scene. My thoughts are that these tracks could terminate at the left end at a road with some buildings such a store or pub. All the buildings can be located on the first 3ft wide board. The tracks could then be combined by turnouts on the second board and run into a tunnel to hidden sidings. The terrain at the rear of the buildings will rise into the backscene. Any comments will be much appreciated. Here are some pictures of the initial planning.Mike
