Many thanks for yet more wonderful photos. of superb scenic modelling which is so good that it could easily be mistaken for real-life.

Having spent all day trying to sort several problems on my poorly computer I've only had time for a little experiment that may (but probably will not) lead to an addition to the layout. So here's one more shot of Church Hill, looking a bit further along than the previous view.

I do indeed! There are some very small components involved and if the idea works it will improve the lineside's appearance. More experiments needed...

Shadow of the drone that took the photo on the road, perhaps?  ;) :thumbsup:

Actually, I had to Photoshop that out of the picture.

A shot taken with the camera sitting on the track. Yes, I did remember to switch off the layout power before placing the metal based camera on the rails!

Smashing shot, Roger.
Have you made the ground signal or bought it and, if the latter, where from please?

They're very crude, Mick. Bits of plasticard strip, rod and tiny cut-out parts made on the Silhouette machine. There's a bit about them here: http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=38682.msg477935#msg477935.

Roger, Wrenton is looking beautiful as always. A bit of a random question: how tall is the layout, say, from track level to the top of the church? I'm struggling to get my head around the potential height of my purported layout with regard to my ability to get it in and out of the dining room. I'm working on the assumption that as the height increases, so does the fragility.
