Co Wexford.Some of the photos are a bit blurry and the running

order is bit all over the place.

Enjoy-

Eamonn thanks for re-posting, you could never get tired of looking at layouts of this class and standard. I love the ballast train and ploughvan, the Generator on the craven set and the executive coaches. The scenery and the harbour are brilliantly detailed and add to an overall top rate layout. Your friend must be very proud of his work.

It sure does inspire me,especially at some stage to have

a layout as nice as this.

Lovely, gentle layout. And great use of backdrops and trees to soften the corners. The bridge is a well selected centrepoint.

Thanks Eamonn for posting and please thank your mystery friends for a view of his layout. At this level of standard he should be posting himself and giving us the benefit of his modelling skills.

What a fabulous layout Eamonn. Rural and urban no problem. I'm really impressed by the small detail all over the place, especially the two different types of ballast brake wagon on the PW train. It looks about 20' x 12' in size. Just for pig iron, what size is it? Love the incline joining the mainline, really well done all over the shop. Richie.

I have no idea the size Richie,the owner is a member on this

site,and I was onto him last night to take a bow.Some aspects

of the layout were not shown,but can be seen on my YouTube

Page.

I gave my Beet and Cement trains a run on The Deeps during the week

and here are a few shots I took.The Beet wagons are Shapeways on modified

prestwins,and the cements are Irish Freight Models kits on Dapol chassis.

That's got to be one of the "atmospheric" layouts I've ever seen. Truly excellent stuff. Even railway content apart (which, in itself is absolutely top class), the scenery and setting is a real work of art. Love the weathering on everything, very realistic.

Lively faded paintwork on the beets! Any chance of video? Great shots!

I did take a short video,but cant seem to be able to upload to photobucket

via phone.

However a few years ago-

And a bit in on this video there is more of The Deeps.

Great stuff Eamonn, a fab train on a superb layout. Love the pic of 001 passing the level crossing the whole scene is just classic.

Glad ye like the photos guys.

The headlights are not to bad to wire up Shem.

You follow the standard wiring for directional lighting.

The main problem I found is light bleed around the headlamp area.I built up a small box of plasticard around

the headlamp area and painted it black.It is possible to do the pilot lights as working as well, however I have not gone down this road yet.

That 001 looks brilliant, the lights really set it off. Looks at home on the layout. Superb!

Great pics of a gorgeous layout. A little slice of Irish railways and countryside brought to life, and a fine model of 001 at the head of a good rake of authentic wagons rumbling through it; it's all there. Top notch stuff. This should be in a railway mag, if it hasn't already been.

I am glad people like this layout so much.I enjoy my visits to see

It every so often, and as my own layout is in bits at the moment

I love giving my own rolling stock a run.The owner and builder

Paddy -Well done.

Eamonn as enjoyable and welcome as the photos always are, nothing beats a nice video clip showing the models doing their thing. I enjoyed that.
