Iv joined this week and thought I would post some pics of my layout so you can see what I get up to in wet and soggy Oldham.
On30 Outdoors (I like to be different)

The layout is an extended dogbone with about about 60' between the two turning loops. The higher level track at the back is for trains towards the house the lower level track for trains going away.

At the furthest point from the house


1st stop Ridge Top Station


2nd stop the growing industrial area


Through the trees


Over the girder bridge


Past the fuel stop


and finally round the turning loop near the house and back to the bottom of the garden again


There are a lot more pictures, info and videos on my website, along with An FAQ page.

Hi John and welcome to the forums. Quite a spread you have there, I like it, it's different. It would be great to see some more photos of the layout posted.
When I read this "

" First thing came to my mind was how much trouble is it to maintain the layout?
Thanks for sharing your hobby with us.
Cheers Willis
Thanks for the comments,

Maintainace is not a big problem, the layout is built on tanalised decking boards, so should be good for 10 years + The track so far is doing fine,, cleaning needs to be done before each running session, the rain tends to xodise the nickle silver faster tha any other elemement, but cleaning only involves walking along with a track rubber, a ten minute job.
