Well, after a really long period looking after our daughter, I have finally managed to post a video update.
This shows the installation of CR Signals and Yard Lights, followed by some line side action.
I made a rod for my back by not properly planning space for signals when I first designed and built Ashpeth Station. More years ago than I care to remember. However, I think I think the solution is OK.

Here is the link:

Very nice video Ged, as enjoyable as ever. Many thanks for posting.

Nice job with the signals, looking good. I was also very impressed by the Revolution TEA wagons, not my era but I have signed up for the B tanks which I hope will be just as good!

Hi Mike

I agree. Revolution and Rapido have done a great job with the wagons and the first images of the Class B Tanks look easily as good. The Class Bs struggled to generate enough support in the initial stages but I am really please they are going ahead.
Cheers,
Ged.

I have finally managed to put another video together. This one is based on Leefield Central Station and follows a busy morning timetable of around 90 minutes. The action has been compressed into 15 minutes of video. I have experimented with using a wide angle lens in order to get all 9 platforms into a single view.
The video also acts as a stage for Electra Railway Graphics with 5 trains converted with Adam's vinyls. Two Class 91 sets, two HSTs and a 325 Postal set.
I have included the url below, but there seems to be a glitch as it doesn't always work. If it fails again and you are interested in seeing the video, go to Youtube and search for N GAUGE UPDATE Leefield & Ashpeth 22
Cheers, Ged

Thanks Weave
I'm glad it didn't curdle the milk with your cereal.

I have checked the url and it is correct, so some glitch with youtube which is unusual.
Cheers,
Ged.

First link didn't work, but Graham from Melbourne's did. (Intentional plug for the Aussie contingent).

Great video, Ged!  :thumbsup:

Thanks Gents
Comments gratefully received and appreciated as always.
I hope you enjoy the journey Daffy. If you start at the beginning, Video 1 is silent, but I added commentaries after that and hopefully they have improved as I went along. Video 13 gives an overview of the whole layout.

Cheers,
Ged.
