I recognise the factory building! You must have a lot of spare pipework laying around.  :)

Great looking layout.  :thankyousign:

Thanks for the kind words.

Not that much to update really as the summer has allowed us to be out and about. I'll start again soon now the weather is changing.

My attempts at further cab ride vids have stalled due to a faulty cube camera and not getting anywhere with a certain ebayer to send a replacement. Budget doesn't allow me to spend that much on a new one so cheap recommendations welcome.

The current plans are:

Have a thorough track clean although there's no real problem.

Remove any dust from buildings.

The track electrics at the yard end have to be finalised. Switches are in place, just joining their tails up with the right droppers - that'll be entertaining!

Struggling to be happy with the Peco TT. I do have a motorised alternative but it is a continental bit of kit rather that the UK well type, so dithering on what to do there.

Add a few more street lights (but hopefully avoid overdoing it).

Add people and animals.

Just remembered that the ballasting needs finishing and then there's the river. How long have I been saying that?  :-[

Photos when there's something new to share.

Not sure, George. I'll have to look it out and let you know. Fleischmann perhaps?

Well that's what I was thinking.... I've got one (uninstalled) which is an excellent bit of gear.

I had no luck with the Peco one either, but mind you, back in the day, there wasn't Arduino or MERG control systems around.

It can be made to look more English by the removal of the hut and other modifications.

Our very own Caz has one on her layout!  :thumbsup:
