Jools Holland model railway

Its 'OO', and definitely Rule 1 but it does look quite good;

Excuse any journalistic mistakes......and some interesting comments (which will change as the time moves on).

It looks amazing!!

The news article about it in a daily paper made me Google Rod Stewarts layout... After seeing them both I've come to the conclusion I need a job in the music industry!  :smiley-laughing:

Quite a few invocations of rule one there, most glaring for me was a rebuilt MN on a bridge over a Dutch port.

Great layout. :thumbsup:

Is that a coal man (no lorry or dray in sight) or a darkly clothed housebreaker leaving the house by the round-a-bout with his swag bag? :hmmm:

Jools' layout does not bear comparison with Pete Waterman's Leamington Spa, which is prototypical and built to museum standards. There are plenty of YouTube videos of it, such as this:

Strangely co-incidental, there is an article in the Telegraph today about eight famous model railway enthusiasts;

Unfortunately, it is behind their Paywall in the Premium section, but you can sign up and get one article free.

Isn't JH's layout due to be featured in RM?

edit: yes, I see it's the front cover.

Interesting to see the old Minic Motorway system in one of the pics!
