I went to the NMRA meeting at Benson, Oxfordshire today, and helped out on Solent Summit layout.  Here are some photos I took!

Great layout, Andy!!

I especially like the 5th and 6th photo from the top.
Excellent choice of locomotives!!!! They're just wonderful!  ;)
How big the layout was, Andy?
Are they module type layout?
Their track work is just amazing!
I'd like to learn how to do so neat ballasting job like that.
Must be nice to operate trains on the environment!

Thank you for your outstanding photos, Andy!!

Hi Andy, Very nice, thank you for sharing the photos. It looks like everyone had a great time running trains and what a nice collection of trains were being run.  :thumbsup:
Cheers,
Rich S.

Hi Dats

It was around 15 to 20 feet long, I would guess, with a dog bone type of fiddle yard at each end, which I think had six tracks on each one.  In this, they managed to park two trains, one behind the other on each track, so they had lots of trains on there.  Certainly not enough room for my two locos to appear!  I liked the Hiawatha train the best, but for some reason, I wasn't around when it ran.

Thank you for the great pictures!
Do you perhaps know if the UP 'Standard' Gas Turbine is 3D-printed? I know that there were resin bodyshells available for Con-Cor's 'Veranda' Gas Turbine about 15 years ago. I wonder if this is one of those or a current 3D-printed shell?

It was 3D printed, I believe.  You might like to contact James Norris.

James, I think, printed it.

The loco belongs to my friend, Bob Norris.

Thank you for the pictures from the Benson meet.  I was hoping to get there myself but alas work got into the way.  In the meantime it is inspiration for my own model making - if I can get started...

Hi guys

I operated on the layout on Sunday!

The bell you can hear is not actually on Solent Summit, but was on the layout next to ours!  Drives you mad....
