Sorry if I may have missed something earlier... is that balsa over the bridge? I like the Peco bridges because they make it easy to curve the road surface. However, I used card, and over 30 odd years it has suffered from local wildlife!

Love the guards van two wagons behind the end of the train, BTW!  :thumbsup:

Hi everyone
I have now posted a video on YouTube on the different stages of the MFS-D I hope you enjoy.
Lovely to see proper mixed trains running!

Overbridge looks good. Be careful when you paint the white line on the road that you don’t make it too realistic thin.  :D
Congratulations on the arrival of your new daughter. Put the layout on the backburner...  more important things to think about at the moment!  :thumbsup:
Looking good. As you say rather frantic action, not very restful, but the loco looks very stable.  :uneasy:

However, it works really well.  :thumbsup:

 I had a play with a spare piece of flexi track, 9 inch diameter is really small. I appreciate the problems you are having with tension in the track!

I agree that manual point operation may be simplest. Either wire in tube or “moving scenery” operation would work well.

Thanks for the vids Rich - look great.

And Andy, I encourage you to keep going with your movie making as they are much appreciated by me.

Why not eliminate the point motor and use a mechanical solution?

That’s a fair point and something I will consider. Annoyingly it was all wired and working fine. It was only when I went to mount the switch on a temporary plate that bare cable twisted into the tabs at the back of the switch shorted.

Lots to think about now. I may give myself a few days off to consider things.
Good looking plastering.

I would definitely cover the track, cheap kitchen towels work well for me. I agree that eliminating all of the holes is virtually impossible. I use ready mixed interior filler as a top coat. I apply it using a lolly stick. I find that magnum sticks are best, shame that you have to eat so many ice creams to ensure that stick stocks are adequate.  :beers:
