Hes on his holidays :)

I was hoping to see him Saturday at Beaconsfield, is he going?
Geominster was my first project which has now been dismantled.

Having learnt so much from Geominster this is the new project.

Hope so hes got the main scenic board :D

Foolish? Um doubtful, I am sure you would get away with that ask Mick for some good reason it is missing!   :)

At least you'd be running something - that puts you ahead of about 25% of layouts at most exhibitions ;)

You're not kidding, Chris. I've lost count of the number of jig saw cuts there are in my work bench :-[

Well as we know the only recommendation with your new layout then is to purchase two spare motors per loco to account for the three miles they will travel around the fiddle yard before each pass of the scenic area lol !
Tormouth may have to open a full TMD again to cope with the Hills and Meadows loco repairs!

Wow!

The layout gets more impressive each time we get an update.

Apart from the computer side of things that are well beyond me, the woodworking skills are truly impressive.

Your wood work is amazing ,not keen on computer control, but the trains do look good with such long runs I didn't see a scenic section I presume that will follow and if it's to the same standard as the woodworking then I look forward too seeing it.
I'm a sit and watch trains going through the country side type of modeler.Im not even bothered by type of loco ,region ,or era I am a one hundred % rule one modeler although with an interest in the western hydraulics.
Having said that As I said your work IS amazing.
Bob
