still fail to see how doing this could ever be useful ...

It's not as if it actually goes anywhere; a spiral to a hidden level (stock yard etc) - yes, I see how that is useful; but not this ...

Don't know what I'm going to do if they're both girls though.  :hmmm:

I expect plenty of our lady modellers here will be able to suggest something! :D

Post 46.
One way to get a long run in a short space, novel certainly, but what's the point?
By the way the intro said 228 cars and 9 locos - I must have miscounted somewhere because I only counted 215 and 8 locos  :goggleeyes:

But no,  :no:, I am not going to watch it again to do a recount  :D

Why is what appears to be a brake van on the end of a passenger train rather than the goods train?
Perhaps the proof that there is intelligent life in outer space is that they haven't contacted us.

Anyone fancy a bit of track cleaning on that little lot?

And from Japan... a layout that could be described as "congealed".

It's a model railway Jim, but not as we know it!

Sorry if I Upset anyone but the last clip ( in my opinion ) is not a model railway its a train set .
In my eyes a model railway tries to look like a real railway with realistic scenery such as fields or town scenes ,stations and yards etc etc .
A train set is just trains running round all over the place with no real sense of going anywhere .
THIS IS ONLY MY VIEW AND AS I SAID I DONT WANT TO UPSET ANYONE.
Some people might enjoy just watching trains going nowhere and I respect thier view . At the end of the day we are all just playing with very expensive toys and the most important thing is to relax and enjoy ourselves.

I enjoyed watching that video, getting all those trains set up must have taken quite some time. Whether it is a train set or a layout, it is something I could watch for a long time  ;)

Cheers John.

Each to his own  :thumbsup: The above layout is impressive in its own way, but not to my taste either. But I must admit the reason I keep coming across these kinds of layouts is because I like looking for ones which interest me, and my tastes go more towards visually interesting than true to a particular prototype. Though I do intend that whatever I come up with will have some grounding in reality and make sense at the detail level, even if the track plan looks like Spaghetti Junction on rails. Mind you the ones on this thread are a bit extreme even for me ;).
