I take it that's not an exhibition layout then  ;)

Serious loads and impressive slow speed control...

I'm afraid I'm in agreement with a couple of the above comments.  It's going to be a very impressive layout, but I'm not really interested unless there's some scenery on the bare boards.

Don't understand your reply. It's seems dismissive of someone's work to date.

Have to agree with you there. Don't tell me that no one didn't 'play' with theirs before they put
in the scenery or before they finished it :o

Just now and again you see something that looks as though it has gone overboard. Not every reaction absolutely has to be "Wow wish I could afford that. Drooling with jealousy. If only I had the space. Brilliant job. Truly fantastic "

Some encouraging words there for anyone wondering if they should risk uploading any pics of their possibly pointless work to date on this friendly forum :admiration:

Looks like being a fantastic representation of one of the worlds best railroad wonders, no doubt it wont be long before the massive GE and EMD loco lashups are rumbling around with a scale mile long consist, a top notch project and a great video.
Keep on Smiling

Looks like a life's work there - it would take at least that long for me to get the scenery done if that was my layout.
My inspiration - never let a setback get you down...

Hi There, yes still in the land of the living and thought I would poke my nose into the forum to see what you have all been up to, pleased I did as I think I will stay and follow what the USA outline lads are doing.
Keep on Smiling

I totally agree with some of the comments above, it is great that a layout has been added here in a very early state, it gives people an insight into what lies under them there hills. I for one enjoyed watching the vid so thank you for posting and I hope that the comments of a few do not put you off adding more int he future.

Best wishes
Simon
