Excellent view Matt. Your lighting looks really good and very effective. :thumbsup:

Have you chosen a back-scene yet, or will you be designing your own?

Really impressive Matt. :thumbsup: I think the difference in brightness between the station area, the freight sidings and the open countryside is just right.

Cheers Mike, yes pleased with the look thus far!

I'll be painting the background in acrylics, that's a project in itself. Will be mainly blue sky with clouds and low lying fir tree hills.

Thanks John - yes it's tricky juggling resistance levels and light placement etc. so many things I had never considered before  :goggleeyes:

Some more rooms lit in the station. This has highlighted yet another task ie. some interior modelling - espicially in the Reisezentrum which is very visible with its big glass windows!



I've realised it's a bad idea to have wires from the LED strips visibly going into the floor within visible rooms, as it really shows up (actually it's mainly the holes which show up, as these are large enought to put the 2-pin plugs down with some clearance)) - had to do some rethinking and chanelling wiring to hide it effectively is actually very challenging.

On some of my 'creations', I have run the wires down narrow plastic angle glued into a corner.

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

Although my original intention on the layout was to create it as German setting, (as I have mainly German stock), the buildings, buses and landscape all look so Swiss that I'm going to go ahead and brand it as such. A decision was needed, as I want to put a logo on the station. It can be located somewhere near Basel or Schaffhausen on the border with Germany to explain all the German trains!

My trains interest always has covered Germany, Switzerland, Austria, France and Italy etc. so any of these trains could crop up and I'm unapologetically applying rule 1  :D

Does this sound OK for somewhere on the Swiss/German border?  :D

When not designing station logos, SBB operative John has to work his dayjob in the Reisezentrum! :D
