I like this! A lot!

However, in the first pic, I think I can see space for a few more trains!!!  :bounce:

Some nice weathering on some of the rolling stock, as well.  :claphappy:

If you find a post helpful, thank the poster... Up there to the right of their name! :) ↑↑↑↑↑↑↑

Can't believe that this is only 4x2, it has so much to look at, but oddly doesn't look to crowded.  Great illusion!!
Thanks for sharing.

Brilliant layout, not deterred by small space which is always good to see, a lot of locos too  :thumbsup:

Okay, as I said before, absolutely fab layout, but now I'm in the mire with S.W.M.B.O. She came in and saw this thread on my computer and is giving me severe earache about what a great little layout yours is, and why did I need to take over the spare room and lay a board 10 feet by 4, and lay an oval of track and get no further in the last 6 months, "and look what he's done in such a small space!" :dunce: So, now I've been told "get on with it, or it goes! You don't NEED anything that big!" :worried:

OOPS! Sounds like your in trouble!  :doh: :D I'd love to have a 10x4 layout but just don't have the space for one at the moment. :thumbsdown:
