    Noel, this is made from Peco points and is one piece, the joints and I can only see two, are difficult to spot. The builder makes different varations as well as taking commissions for other configurations, TDR

    LISNEAL ROAD Hi everybody Just a quick update as track laying should start very shortly on the layout, I have had this point work expertly constructed for me and its been tested on DC and DCC and works perfectly. Very pleased with the workmanship, this will also save about 5 inches on the length should I had used separate points. Its total length is 465mm and also been constructed to Peco centres at 51mm. The difference can be seen in the pictures of the compactness of this piece of work

    Hi All. Quick up date on Lisneal Road Layout Some pictures of the track components in place on two of the boards to test the look and make sure it all fits. Folding legs are currently under construction, and will be fixed in place with the back scene boards. Actual laying of the track hopefully will begin by the end of the month.

    Hi all Its been a while since I have been on here to contribute, just over a year. But Im back and hopefully puting up some progress on the layout and announcing a new layout called "Lisneal Road". Its size is 12ft long x 1ft 8ins wide, featuring DCC sound, consisting of double track approach into two Platforms and loco servicing yard Rachelstown and St stephens green, is coming on and will remain in its fixed position where as Lisneal Road will be portable and hopefully open to exhibition invitations when complete, I will be opening a new thread for Lisneal Road shortly for anyone to view the track plan and follow its building progress.

    Totally agree Noel, Your first picture, i thought this a very detailed layout, great to meet up with yourself, Kirley, Hunslett 102, Dhu Varren and a few others, missed the chance to talk to IRM reps but still purchased 12 of their superb wagons, looking forward to and planning next years visit. Highly recommended show

    Hi all having made the change to DCC I decided to change the cumbersome black box control panel, below are the new slim line perspex facias that will replace it.
