Thats actually four trains on three tracks. All dcc of course. (Please ignore the fact the load haul 60 has lost its buffer beam)

Hope you like it.

And here is another one
(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

The NMT falls off on the point at the end of the video, due to a dodgy coupling on a coach. Now awaiting repair.

Enjoy.

Needless to say, its not my voice what you can hear.

Just another quick update.
Tonight we have connected up all four lines (temporarily), which means that we can have four trains running right round, which we tested tonight. If I have time on Thursday I'll try and take a few more shots with trains going on all four lines.
The fiddle yard really only has the running lines in at the moment, although, as I think you can see on one of the recent photos, there is one end of the fiddle yard points in. We will only be adding little bits at a time,  of the rest of the fiddle yard, as and when we can afford to. With another thirty odd points to buy, you can see it is going to be costly.

Thanks for looking.
Cheers

And just another video, this time showing the Grand Central HST coming up the link line.
Please notice the mugshot at the beginning of the video.

This is mightily impressive! The Grand Central HST looks good too.
Just one Pendolino, give it to me, a beautiful train, from Italy

I must just say how much I have enjoyed reading this thread. It is a magnificent layout representing an area I have sped through many times on my way to D'ton. I just didn't realise so much was going on there. I am a novice as far as modelling is concerned and have a small roundy roundy layout that I want to add an extra board on to. I was wondering how to make it detachable. Your copper board tutorial has shown me the way. Many thanks. Do you use board joiners of some sort to keep them aligned?
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

'Tis a fantastic layout  :thumbsup:

Don't envy the work involved even though it's a team effort, bad enough having the workload I have with my 'little' 12'x3'  ::)

Great work so far though by all involved, looking forward to seeing it finished at an exhibition sometime in the future  :)

Malc, regarding joining boards have a look at THIS POST which gives another method of fixing/aligning track at board-edges and also has a link to suitable dowels for making sure the boards line up every time  :thumbsup:

Hi Malcolm
Thanks for your kind comments.
We do use dowels, brass dowels to align the boards, but I would say much more crucial than that is having boards that are straight and square. Straightness and squareness makes the boards line up easily. This is achieved by using good grade ply which is all cut cut on a machine, and a jig used to assemble the girders. A different jig was used to put the girders together. There is still some movement  but it has been minimised.
We only use two m10 bolts between two boards, though we could use a third in the middle if needs be. So far, the problems have been more to do with poor track laying/ soldering than anything else. But mainly we've been pleased with the results.
Cheers
Kirky
