If it wasn't for the wallpaper in the background you wouldn't know it was a model, looks really effective, very well done that man.   :thumbsup:

Really nice and you have the greenery and atmosphere down to a T.

No way a criticism but I think the brown ballast would probably have some colour variation rather than what appears on the pic to be 100% the same. A bit of ash, soot and oil spill would make it just that bit more realistic and in line with rest of your excellent scenic work.

Your post makes me itching to get back to my layout but there's still loads of decorating to get done.

Keep those pics coming, thanks for posting.

morning guys and girls
well while i am off all week i thought i would post an update soon as i had loads of spare track left over and i was going to make a small layout just to mess around on i decided to extend hurst moore a little and move the goods yard so that i have more room for a village and have the station in the middle which made more sence i have got 2 twin controllers as well as a single so 5 in total the 5th one was just controlling the turn table but my thought being if i place an on off switch to the tt when not using it i can then use the 5th to control the goods yard and do a bit of shuntting what do you recon here are some pics any thought or ideas on how you would change the goods yard  more than welcome

right i have come to a very big decision i am closing down my layout and am starting again this is only due to the fact that i was never happy with it and before i go any further the only good thing is that i only tact the track with hot glue so this will come up easy so its bye for now but will be back with somthing differant

A very big decision Del but if you're not happy with what you've done then it's the only right way to go in my book. well done for being brave.   :thumbsup:

See you on the layout discussion thread then?   ;)

What has made you decide this Del? Your layout looks great? What is it missing that you want?

Not sure what it was missing but i felt that i made the mistske of pushing the track to ghe edge of the boards instesd of cutting though the country side plus the turn table never got used also it felt like it took over the spare room so this time it will run around the room which i think has given me more running room with a length of 12ft x 9ft x 6ft all boatds 2ft wide except for the ends which will be 3ft your more than welcome to pop roind when you got a momment to give me some ideas
