I had to make a decision on how to start, and the first place would be a baseboard.
My woodworking skills as you will see as this blog progresses are not really up to the standard to make a safe, secure and stable baseboard, so I looked at alternatives.
As budget is a big concern with this project, so after a search on Freecycle, I found a suitable item to start with, a table, sized approximately 1200 x 750 mm.
I wanted some operational interest, as well as something good to look at, and decided a shunting puzzle type layout would be a good start, a variation on the classic Inglenook.
This set the size of the world I am creating, and the ideas started as shown below.
We move on.
