The £35 model railway challenge: project history

drawing model railwayIn the summer of 2017, I set myself a challenge to see if a model railway could be built for £35.  

The goal was to build a model railway for just £35 (this budget covering materials, track, electrics, controller and rolling stock) and to complete it 4 months.

Above is my initial back-of-an-envelope concept sketch, below is this history of its creation to date. Below is a step by step guide to its creation, from beginning to current.
