Not DCC! This layout is definitely analogue. The layout appeared at the Corsham N gauge Show in June 2015 very incomplete but running thanks to some jury rigging, & appeared further developed at the N Gauge Society Worldwide Group Convention at Corsham on Saturday July 15th 2017. It is planned to be shown next, and rather more complete, at the Steeple Ashton Show (Nr Trowbridge Wilts) on Saturday 16th September 2017.
There are photos from 2015, and more photos from July 15th as soon as Tim (@ mirrlees) & Omar (@ anaes20) supply them. Not a hint chaps but an order.
Following my main railway interests the layout is fictional, but based loosely on the French/Swiss border, perhaps like a miniature Basel (Basle). The date is 2017. The scenario is of lines running towards a station throat (but not including it) with a nearby depot for lorries to be driven on to wagons (16 wheel wagons) to be taken south through the Alpine tunnels, and also unloaded of course. The lorry park will feature but not the actual depot (if it was HO scale the lorries could be driven on to the wagons on the layout - my skills are not up to that in N scale).
The layout has a two track main line plus a single freight line. The freight line has a passing loop and an engine siding. With crossovers there is operating potential so the control board incorporates two controllers, plus a walk round controller, and point switches for route setting, and switches for isolating sections to allow trains to be held while trains are switched from the main line to the freight line, and reverse.
The layout is on a single board and will just fit into my present car. It is 1905mm long by 1140mm wide.
The name for the layout is/was provisional but seems to have stuck. What it stands for is contained in the text above. :)

Hi,

Looking good and looking forward to more.

Quick reply from Tim there! Well done. Are they 2015 photos or July 15th ones?

Cheers weave  :beers:
