Zut alors!

That is great progress, and I love the scenic elements that you have started to add. I hope never to see the wiring you've had to do, my single-track end-to-end has so much spaghetti underneath the baseboards that I get a headache when I look at it.

Great job so far!

That's looking tremendous, Andy.
If I may make a small suggestion could you find a way to curve the backscene in the corners as it will all look so much better rather than scenery doing 90 degree turns ;)
Maybe just some card painted to match the sky colour you've used? :hmmm:

Just updated myself on this. That is one big post!

Basically agree with everything above, but would like to say I love double junctions (dunno why, exactly, childhood thing, methinks), and see one is quite prominent in the last couple of photos.

Cool!  :beers:

Hi NPN,

Yep, that's definitely on my radar. Right angles in scenery really do have quite a jarring effect so I absolutely want to negate is as much as I can. It's hard to see but I've already tried using plaster to shape a slight curve to minimise the corners but it just isn't enough. I will be trying some mounting board next to see if that helps.

The best layout i saw use a curved backscene is brixham. Worth a look out

I hope you don't mind me saying this Andy, but curved corners, (to my eyes), definitely make the back scene look more natural. This picture is of the rear left corner of 'Averingcliffe'.



As NPN suggests, some painted card, (held with double sided tape ?), would definitely do the job.

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