So after a little weekend experiment I've installed led lighting to light part of my layout.

To show this off and to test my terrier I shot this video.

Enjoy

Blimey over a year since an update!

Well I have been busy, we had an extension to our house to build, so the layout has been subject to storage or stuff stored around it.

Although I have acquired an improved electrics for the railway and led lights for the entire layout as a result of the extension.

However after days of tidying and an hour of cleaning, the lay worked first time.

3 hours of good running to end the year, next year more scenics, a new fiddle yard and maybe some trains to run.

Happy new year to all forum members.

Thank you, I do like to test my engines to see what they can do  on a level (ish) track.

I think there is another link on this thread with my union mills Drummond black motors double heading over 100 wagons.

A new arrival on the line having a little running in

Most likely to be the first engine I'll run without a front coupling.

Thanks, the train has been around for a while waiting for the right engine. I was so pleased that farish produced the shirt button tender monogram version.

I promise the layout still exists, I am currently working on a traverser fiddle road made out of our old book case. Below are a few videos from the last month

The big change is I had a birthday in December and a very generous present has allowed me to start converting to use of dapol magnetic couplings

With lock down restricting my movements I've made a determined effort on landscaping. Finally after years of dithering the water under the bridge is done.

After taking these I remodeled the embankment and trees came out as I wasn't happy with the angle of the embankment . It was easy enough, more changes in the next few days.

Thanks for the update which also reminds me that I have procrastinated for best part of 18 months to get my river sorted!

Photos can really help you develop (sorry) and improve the scenic areas.
