Welcome To Dan's Garage
Dan's Garage is my way of show casing my slotcar collection, model railway as well as other areas of my life.
I started collecting slotcars when I was about 7 or 8 when my mum bought me my first Scalextric car, a black Lamborghini Diablo and the Silkolene Truck. After
that I was hooked and bought another car when ever I had some spare cash and before I knew it I had
hundreds of cars and managed to collect 1 of every Scalextric
After a few years I managed to talk my mum into letting me have a perminate circuit in the loft. I started by designing the layout I wanted
Sports Track. I then used green carpet tiles which just happened to be the same height as the track so really finishes off the track
nicely to simulate grass filling the gaps.
When I finally had the circuit how I wanted I decided to set up a model railway running round the edge of the loft. I started by extending the beams that run
along the edge of the loft using some spare wood I had. After painting it green I started laying some track down...
