Hi Pete,
Reason #1 - you're on your own there!

Reason #2 - half the fun of landscaping is taking stuff you would normally throw out and making use of it, even if it's only making papier mache. I used some kitchen roll soaked in diluted filler

Reason #3 - end to end layouts require operating. A roundy can be set in motion while you sit back with your favourite tipple If in the cold garage I suggest brandy ;)) It means you'll see the same train all the time but, hey, the brandy aspect more than makes up for that :laugh3:

What's more is you can blame your inebriation on Mrs W as she forced you out there in the first place :)
