BGLR : The tram line

As well as the narrow gauge Birches Green line my layout also has a HO scale tramline. This began as just a way to put something on the bridge over the layout. Originally it was going to be a static track just for scenery purposes but when I bought a great Roco tram I thought I'd expand it into a proper secondary layout...

Phase 1 of the tram is shown in yellow on the plan above, it was quickly followed by phase 2 which needed a board extension and gives the tramline it's current terminus. Phase 3 is shown in green and will require a new board which will be on top of the existing layout. This will also provide a good backdrop to the left side loop of the main line.

It shouldn't prove too difficult to built phase 3, the hardest part will probably be to find a suitable piece of wood!
