As with all my layouts, it was always the intention to protect the sections when not in use under purpose-made covers. These not only allow the layout to be transported safely but keep the dust off and also inquisitive moggies! Storing them away in a corner would result in having to move stuff out of the way and inevitably deter quick modelling sessions on the layout itself. The solution was to fix up some shelving in the railway room enabling sections simply to be selected for working on. Here we see Tilly seeing if it's a good place to sit. The baseboards have taken a lot longer to finish off than expected. The shelving has already allowed more time to be spent on them (I'm fussy when it comes to woodworking) and tracklaying should finally start soon.
