Wow, that looks like a radical rebuild but I think you will be much happier with the new layout.
Thanks for the video. As Mick has already said: Most enjoyable. I particularly like the long (ex) Prussian passenger train.

Keep up the great work.
Best,
Michael

Part 2 of the running, but now automated with a unfortunate situation at the end... But I'm happy with how all is working out.

No timetable, just free running... in circles.  ;)

I connected a new section of the station. This section serves the first electrical line of Belgium to Tervuren. Like in 1931, I'm performing test runs with Belgian's first diesel car (a German product) and first steam car (a Sentinel from the LNER). The latter I still need to finish and paint...

For me, more unusual stock. Smashing.

The LNER Sentinel steam car should not be too foreign. The Belgian State Railways bought 3 units in England to test them out.

I connected today the last two points. Now trains can switch over to the opposite track while entering the station, and have much more platforms to choose from.

Wonderful. Although I believe my glass of Nuits St. Georges may have been spilt travelling through the scissors crossing at those speeds!
Could you let me know what the piece of music was, Michiel?

As I subtitles during the speedy transition over the scissors: "I still have to limit the maximum velocity when taking points on the bendy side." I did, so from now on no spilling of Nuits St Georges anymore.

The music is from a collection of happy upbeat royalty free musical pieces I download a few years ago.

I came back from vacation, and started the layout after one month of dust gathering. The trains went running through the mess of the moment, but all went extremely well. I made a video, and the nervous camera movements and bombastic music are part of the mess. Happy viewing!
