Very nice work Graham, nice to see the curved backboard too, looks better than having the sharp corners  :thumbsup:

Thank you for your kind comments.

The layout is nine feet long, two feet wide and yes, the curves go down to nine inch radius "out of sight" at the back.

It is booked to be at East Grinstead (March) and Folkestone (October) in 2012 if you would like to see it "in the flesh" so to speak.

The tunnel mouths are from SD Mouldings. Being on the curves, they are a little tight to gauge and some filing was required but I quite like them.

Not quite nowhere, there was a Southbridge Mk1.

The layout was displayed at the Tonbridge show (My home club) a couple of years ago but shift working meant I could't get to others. I've now taken early retirement.

The signals are PD Marsh and although I used to be a Network Rail Signaller and a volunteer Signalman at my local railway, they don't work.

Hi Graham,

Well done on a very nice looking layout. I like the over and under bridge set up.
