First ever model railway layout

My first ever model railway layout! Well OK, had many setup over the years, but always just on the floor! Looking forward to how this is going to grow, over the coming days, weeks, months and well years, I guess!

Right now the layout is controlled using the Hornby HM 2000 Analogue Controller, along with the HM 2000+ right hand DC controller. May upgrade to DCC at some point. But that’s way off in the future…
