A bit of destruction down the other end of the layout - now you see it...



Now you don't...



It proved impractical to integrate the original layout, so it Had To Go in a shower of loose ballast.

However, parts will be recycled, such as this section of road, which will fit quite nicely in front of the farm.

Just be thankful I haven't felt inspired to model Shitte Station.

Random photograph, from the smartphone which is not so great for scenic shots.

A momentous, possibly even historical day, as after almost ca. 4 years messing about with this stuff I've finally connected the second mainline loop and wired up two controllers so I can have two (2) trains running at the same time in different directions.



This is literally the first time I've done this and it's requiring some mental adjustment ("Why isn't that train stopping? Oh, wrong controller" kind of thing)   :headbang:

The trains featured are cheap Kato Kokuden units, which are expendable in case of unintended mishaps. The orange one is the first powered N gauge unit I bought, so kind of appropriate for this festive occasion  :beers:

Going by the motto "you can never have enough track", experimenting with filling in a space just right for some kind of traction depot or similar.

Random shot from an angle which makes things look a lot more complete than they actually are.
