First post of the year Raymond but worth the wait. Your new buildings are adding depth to what is already a very impressive layout.

Life has arrived on the layout

 

A spare hour or so away from the sharp end let me place population and some details on the layout. Some pics of progress so far. Quiet pleased with the result. TDR

Wow Imagination let loose

Excellent stuff. I like the farmer's trailer and cattle - a very familiar scene at most rural stations, and on account of being gone for over forty years now, rarely modelled. The "mechanical horse" also adds a nice touch.

 

Lovely layout.

That looks really good, I like the sheep being driven down the road. Animals being driven on a highway? c'ant remember when I last saw that happen. Keep working your magic!

hi derry ? only just started having a good look around the forum, love the layout.

how did you make your platforms?

i noticed you left painting of the track till the end, so how did you do that, air brush or just brush

and what colour would you reccommend?

Paddy, the platforms are from the peco range. Track work was airbrushed were accessible remainder by brush . The colour is railmatch sleeper grime. Other detailing and colours have yet to be added to the track in time. Hope this helps. TDR

I love this. The detail is super and the ballast is great. Lots of little details but also a great feeling of space.

Hi all, not been at the layout much for about two months, with work again taking priority, all back to normal now, a visit to the layout two weeks ago by Kirley spurred me to have a running day of motive power, this took in most diesel locos including A, C, Hunslett, 121, 141, 181, 071, 111 and 201 classes all in turn running light engine, I’ve also taken some video footage of stock running, this will be posted up when edited.

Hi All,

This is just a short piece of film showing five locos, 071, 141, 201, 111 and a hunslett in construction stage running to test out the sounds, to date I’ve converted around 20 plus locos to DCC thus far, and enjoying every minute. Difficult to hold a phone whilst filming and a throttle on the other controlling My only regret is, Should had converted the layout earlier. Enjoy TDR

The locos look really well on the layout. Glad you've enjoyed the switch to DCC and sound. It adds a whole new dimension to driving model trains. Layout looks really well. I love the walls and green foliage.
