I have some results to share over the next week or so of 2 different applications, but I am mightily impressed with it, so simple and the dimmer switches allow for easy brightness tuning, which is a boon for non-electronical types like me!  Not as cheap as basic electronic components, but so easy to use I really like it

I continued with my housekeeping in the area of the new road tunnel and light hub, when running the wiring for the layout, I created a situation whereby the cables all crossed a future scenic area, above the baseboard.  In the picture below, they ran above the plywood ceiling above the storage cassettes.  They are technically below the baseboard level, but I decided some time ago to drop the level of the scenery to form the river running away from the dam and had not go around to re-routing the wires (until now) - here they are half way through re-routing (it didn't occur to me to take a before shot)



Bit of left over trunking used to tidy them up



And the area where they used to run across is now clear, it had also become a bit of a dumping ground for all sorts, so the housekeeping extended to clearing it all out  :angel:



With that niggly job out the way, I was able to start thinking about how I will form the terrain,



... to feature the Iron Bridge replica, there will need to be a rocky narrow point (a bit like the Hermitage near Dunkeld for those that know the area)



But....there is sitll a bit of an obstruction in the way that will prevent the water from flowing ........  :hmmm:

Looking “tidy” Andrew  :D

Could that obstruction turn into a weir?
