Requirements considered were:
- stations and their locations
- yards and yard working
- train storage, i.e. yards, sidings and sheds
- passing loops
- reversing capabilities
So, first consideration was height of benchwork. After careful consideration and viewing many layouts both private and exhibition and determined that a height somewhere between 1100mm to 1200mm high. Therefore my layout ended up being a height of 1165mm.
I used 75mm x 35mm pine framing timber (which I have realised is way overkill - the Shed will blow away before the benches).
On top of the framing I attached 3000mm x 915mm x 15mm MDF paneling.
