Hi, Webbo.
Awesome update!
Another excellent modelling, Webbo!!
I liked the cab ride videos. When the train pass another train at siding is so realistic. A train of the length makes such a big difference, just like a real heavy duty class 1's railroad!! Bridges, a tunnel, everything well executed. I'm impressed that all of those elements are well spread out. Feel like I'm really traveling some distance!

How did you model the derelict barn? Details are amazing!!
I'm inspired! Thank you, Webbo!

Dats
Best regards with my annoying moving signature.

Thank you all for your compliments.

Maridunian - it is taking me quite a while (years) to do all of this - the downside of constructing a biggish layout I'm afraid, and I'm not very quick at making things.

Dats - the derelict bar is a kit by  BranchLine LaserArt as is the farm house.

I can only echo what everyone else has said Webbo, Excellent!

Do you have an upper level as well?  Looks like there's another layout above this one in some views....?

Thanks Andy

Yes, I have a 'layout' at an upper level, but it is only track circuits with no scenery. Mainly designed to keep me happy while I was building my main N scale layout below. On the upper level I have a G scale circuit, an HO circuit with a siding, and an N scale circuit with 2 sidings. I have two G scale locomotives - an SD40-2 that blows exhaust smoke and a White Pass & Yukon Railway 4-6-0 with Walschaert valve gear that I love to watch. I wanted this stuff in the back yard, but my wife won't have it. On the HO/OO track, I run my Trix Twin Britannia and Class 5 that I had when I was a kid, a Hornby Flying Scotsman with train, and my Rapido passenger train, the Canadian.

I have to admit that I like all model railway scales - each has its pluses and minuses.

As I'm a definately RULE ONE MAN  The Canadian in N gauge would be a fantastic train to run on my layout sometimes ,as said in previous posts I had ALLWAYS wanted to go To Canada and my son Glenn treated us to two weeks in Lake Loise and Calgary unfortunately it was the worst winter they had for years and although they enjoyed the skiing we didn't get to do a lot , but the coach Trip from Calgary down to Lake Loise and back was amazing ,if we ever win the lottery I would love a trip on the Canadian AND The Rocky Mountaineer which would be another great  train in N gauge .
WE CAN ALL DREAM CANT WE.

I've seen film of the Rocky Mountaineer Bob, and it looks like something I need to do as well.  It's on my bucket list.

Superb modelling Webbo, been a treat on a Saturday morning at work to go through your thread, downside is I can't watch the video's!

Been educational as well reading your "how I did it" updates too.

Cheers,
Andrew

Just caught up with the August vid.

Brilliant and such smooth running on what is obviously beautifully laid track.

Makes my efforts look a bit, well, not anywhere near as good. Must try harder!

Really impressed, Webbo! Look forward to seeing a lot more.  :thumbsup:

Thanks Dave and others

The smooth running is not so much down to me and my tracklaying as to the Kato SD40-2 that is pushing my camera car. This loco has dual fly wheels and 12-wheel pickup and will run smoothly over dirt.

Andrew, I'm wondering why you can't see the videos. They are just regular Youtube clips - nothing fancy or unusual.

Its a company policy... partly to remind people they should be working, partly because we hang off a ropey satellite connection with a lowish bandwidth, and things like youtube etc. really hit the speed!
