Well here is the first ever running session on Nodinson Hills

As I have finished the main loops of track on my layout I decided it was time to run some trains.

The outer track has the BR black standard class 4mt pulling a small rake of two br maroon mk1 coaches.
The inner track has the br green class 04 diesel pulling a slightly longer rake of mixed freight.

I know at the moment they are going the same direction but when i've got my dcc controller it will all be separate as it is all wired up for dcc even on dc.



I have a 5 sidings to lay yet but at least now I can sit back and enjoy some trains running.

Agreed.i was certain that Standard 4 was set for disaster as it came around that first curve.
It's you railway so build it as you want and run whatever you like. The only rule is - ENJOY :

Thanks guys, I did have a mishap with the cl04 the other day, I didn't have the inner loop finished and I forgot to turn the power off as it came to the end of the laid track haha

I have lost more than one prized locomotive on a four foot plunge to a concrete floor.

Watch those baseboard edges!
