Really nice layout Christophe.

I don't think I have looked before at this thread, possibly because the name sounds old-fashioned so I thought it was a steam era (or modern image) layout!!!

That doesn't really make any sense - but it teaches me a lesson not to be too era-ist!!!

Keep up the good work,

Cheers Jon  :)

Thx! Now that you mention it, it does sound a bit like steam-era :hmmm: Never mind, because steam-era will start shortly on my layout. I've made another purchase...  :bounce:

Look what dragged the CAT in... :D



It quickly turned out that the valve gear stands out too far. She'd pass neither the platforms nor speed signs or ground signals :doh: :doh:

I'm afraid a foto model is all she'll ever be on this layout. At least the price was quite reasonable.

Guess it's all diesel for me :-[

The Metcalfe platform canopy with the glass roof is a beautiful construction. I installed 8 LED several months ago. Today I decided to paint the struts in FGW-blue (should have done this before assembly...) and added a partition wall which is similar to St Erth.

Excellent job ... can I ask where you got the LEDs from?

Cheers  :beers:

Thanks!

I got them from Ebay. Just search for "LED 3mm cold white"

I wired them in a parallel pattern with one 300 Ohms resistor, which isn't ideal but as my power supply does only yield 3,5 Volts, I guess I'm okay...  :idea:

Some more details from the last few days :)

People are starting to bring the scene to life. A group of backpackers from Manchester waiting for the 9:30 CrossCountry service to take them home...



Car keys are at the bottom of the handbag would be my first guess...



A young couple arriving at the station for the service to Porthminster (I'm not going to  call it St Ives as this isn't actually St Erth ;D )



A not-quite-as-young couple. As befits a loving spousse, she's patietly carrying his equipment :D

Thanks! Indeed, they are. It's a pity that figures in 148th scale seem to be a rare thing. Those "Preiserleins", as we call them in Germany, are actually a bit too small.
