Hi all, Since my trip to Japan last October, and my purchase of a second hand Tomix C62, my collection has expanded quite a bit. I've seen what a lot of Japanese layouts and would like to create something of my own. I love how modular layouts look with scenic sections that can be moved about and connected whereever and thought that might be a good idea, inspiration drawn from http://www.jmra.gr.jp/shinohara/shino106.html. So initially to start off, my first little project would ideally be something with some operational value, steam era, and the inglenook concept fits best with small spaces. I am thinking a small rural station through line, with a small yard with 3 sidings to allow for sorting and shunting. My track system will be tomix finescale, I currently have the basic loop, and passing loop packs, so have 2 of the 3 points I require. I am mulling over a doubleslip for the 3rd to add a headshunt/kickback. However, I do not have any rail ends, and have not had any luck finding a store stocking them at a decent price. I need help with ideas on baseboard constructions, as well as potential real life locations that would suit this idea. Does anyone know what the boards are made of in the layouts in the link above?
