You certainly entertain me, Andy

I look forward to your next video.

For me, I enjoy all types of layouts from the super realistic to the much simpler roundy-roundy. The difference is where the emphasis lies. The super realistic may require less imagination and focus more on the setting. We all admire some of these layouts on this forum for their exceptional modelling skill. Conversely, at the other end of the spectrum with the roundy-roundy with simple scenery, one might focus on the trains rumbling by with more imagination required to put them in setting. Some posters are less skilled modellers than others, but that's totally cool in my view and needn't diminish from their layouts in the slightest.

I have to admit, I always love a well sceniced layout, but after the afternoon I had with the Sandy Creek layout, I have to say there's a place for the barely sceniced layout as well.  I had great fun just running trains.

 I’m moving into the train shed now for my ‘working at home’ phase in life,as the weather warms up. I sit at a small desk with a train or two circling the walls of the shed, pausing them occasionally for a zoom meeting.
It’s very soothing!

That's what it's all about Andy, if you're not having fun anymore it makes it so much harder to progress

@mr magnolia  Reckon you should leave the trains running Donald certainly no worse than the lady who kept her zoom session with her co-workers running on her ipad whilst she went to the toilet, yep everyone saw her take her trousers down and ascend the throne   :o :o :-[ :-[

I've had a full day on the layout today!  I laid the two sidings in the corn syrup facility, then the switch into the stabling point and the headshunt. 

I've made a speed limit sign and installed it, together with sidewalks on the road bridge.  I've also painted a two dimensional road on my backdrop where the road disappears and put a crash barrier along the edge.

Oh and by the way, once I've finished laying down the new track layout in the Cherry Valley area, I'll film MHRR 53 and upload it to Youtube.

You are most welcome Donald.

I'm hoping I can upload a video every two weeks or so.  Should give me time to do some updates and have something to bring to the table.
