I wanted to make more room on this layout and decided that the only way to do it was to move the castle backward.  To do this I had to raise it over the track.

These photographs show how I did it and also the finished result.

  

HOe/OO9 SCALE

 

The layout in October 2019.

 

I have lifted the castle off to make a trial base over the track. 

 

The castle in place to give me an idea of whether or not I will carry on with the changes.

 

I have decided to make the changes, it will give me the extra space that I want.

The baseboard stripped ready for the changes.

 

This is the basic new base.

 

A few slight changes that were needed to the baseboard have been made.....

 

....and tidied up.

 

The base starts to take shape. I had to widen the front portal my 'toastrack' coaches were catching the sides. I prefer the the new shape and so I also changed the side portal to match.

  


The rides and side stalls etc. are all back in place, albeit in different positions.  I am happy with the finished results this will give me more space to add things in the future. A toastrack coach is in the tunnel and also the inset.
