Terrific work once again Claude.

Hope to make it to Midhurst but not sure yet (must remember to get there early as car-park fills up very quickly)

Thanks... If you are going to Midhurst do get there early as half of the car park is being dug up, so parking is extra specially slim!

That is really annoying - why dig up the car park when there is a major event such as the railway exhibition? Maybe they should restore the Middy line then I could get a train!

Well, we had the Midhurst show on Sunday, and I was very pleased with the way Kanjiyama performed...more or less faultlessly. It is testament to the extremely high standard of electrics on the layout that I encountered no issues; I can say that with no hint of bragging as I did not do the electrics on the layout!  :no:  :D

I am in the process of sorting the pictures out, but here are a couple of snaps of the layout; which is now essentially complete. There will be some tinkering to do, and I will look to add a lighting pelmet over the next few months, but the major graft is done...  :claphappy:





Now, what is THAT doing there?



Finally, spot the odd one out in the yard!



I'd better keep quiet about the Amtrak F40 sitting in the platform at the same time!  :worried:

Great photos :thumbsup:

Gotta love those interlopers - they must have extended the Channel Tunnel by a few thousand miles since I last checked :doh:

I was sorry not to get to this show and glad it all went well. Love the layout and great to see the Southern train appearing again

Thanks all... I could not resist the end of show larking around...I always try to get something interesting to run...

In a way it is on a hiding to nothing at shows. It's foreign (clearly a bad thing for a lot of visitors at a small local show!), 'modern' (i.e. not steam) and worse still predominantly operated by units; which in itself is unusual for an exhibition layout.

Lovely layout - I particularly like the 'semi-rural' feel, with slightly subdued colouring.  Makes a nice change from brash urban layouts, loaded with advertising hoardings, neon lights and vending machines in every corner (as they should be!).

You just have to shock 'em...  If I think I'm getting an 'audience' that won't appreciate my usual stock of bland foreign suburban EMUs, I wheel out the Nankai Rapi:t - that makes even the most dyed-in-the-wool kettle-head blink!

Thanks! In a way I am suprised there aren't that many rural Japanese layouts out there. There is plenty of stuff out there, and Japan boasts some lovely scenery.

One of the joys of Japanese layouts is the weird and wonderful selection of multiple units available. I once operated Yamanouchi Oshika solely with multiple units at one show...and yes, the Rap:t does generate a lot of interest!

I plan to make mine fairly rural, just a small town with very few modern buildings

I sometimes ponder the idea of building a layout based on the Kansai Honsen - linking Nagoya with Namba.  Despite being a main line (Honsen), it is pretty rural, and a lot of the traffic on the most rural part is little KiHa 210 DMUs (the blue and silver 120-200s that Tomix make or made are right for the line).  There are some charming little traditional stations - the Kato rural station would be a good match.
