The platforms look extremely good.
Are all 3 loops independently powered?

@gc4946  made an excellent modern building using a couple of Farish loco case lids and an Oxford Diecast box. If you can source them it might make a great modern station building :hmmm:

Looking good. I especially like the first bridge. Is that the scratch build or the Scalescene? Either way, you've made a great job of them.  :thumbsup:

Ok been slow going but more update on the build
Tunnel completed at opposite end of loop with vehicle one for access to lower area







Retaining wall and concrete TMD area

First weathered track ballast was bit garish Brown



Scale scenes modular station








And having a go at scratch building this for my TMD (single track version) as want to set as under construction on layout
