Great stuff and a lovely layout.
It's interesting to hear sound added to a layout. It works but probably not really my cup of tea.
I too would add some people (they really bring a layout to life).
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Wow Caz that video clip is amazing I wish I could put sound in my Locos it does add to the realism but as Trainfish said you could do with some more people unless of course the video was mid day when it wasn't so busy.
I can't remember how big your layout is I must have read it somewhere on one of your posts.

Thanks Agrippa I went back and read the original thread I often forget to go back to the Original page on a thread but I will do now on such brilliant layouts like Caz's . I love the idea of sound but there is no way I could afford it I'm also not keen on computer controlled layouts I like hands on and operating errors are part of the fun but Caz's actual layout and modelling is fantastic .My layout looks ok from a distance but don't look too close you can see the faults.

Good stuff Caz but I think you need a few people on those platforms  :thumbsup:

The platforms are not finished so didn't want to populate them until they are.  Saying that, I'm not really happy with them and thinking of doing completely new ones, that's if I can borrow a "roundtoit" from someone.   ;)

Glad you all liked the video, hoping to do one showing the shunting in the coming weeks and more of the layout operation.

Great video and excellent layout Caz, it is really atmospheric with the added bonus of sound.

Are the platform canopies scratch built and if not, who is the manufacturer?

Thanks Guy, glad you enjoyed the video, I can sit entranced just watching them, makes all the effort I put into building the layout and programming the schedules very rewarding.

As for the canopies, they are a mixture of Ratio posts (from set 208 if memory serves me well) and scratch built canopies using plasticard and micro strip as I didn't like the canopies supplied with the kit.

Just so as I can keep track of all my bits and pieces adding this in here as a link to a video of Claywell terminus shunting using Dapol EasiShunts.  http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=26472.msg286901#msg286901

That is a truly amazing video.
I would never trust my easishunts enough to even consider something like that!

Hi Caz,

What a lovely layout you are creating looks lovely as well, goes to show with some hard work and a lot of thought what one can do to be creative well done to you. My partner and myself are building a table top layout which was supposed to be a coffee table one but ended up with a 6ft by 2ft 4 with 13m toughened glass top and front. Will try and post some photo's if I can as its still an on going process. By the way Cas I have managed to get that diesel railcar running after spending most of this afternoon checking things over found there was a lot of dirt stuck between the wheels and bogie frames which you couldn't see with the naked eye.
Gloria.

Just read this thread from the beginning, what a great inspirational layout. You have really brought this layout to life. The sound, the lights and smoke a true magical theatre in miniature, and the outstanding modelling really is in a class of it's own. I can see some serious thoughts have gone into this layout and love the way it comes to pieces. In my experience some big layouts can just out face you, but by braking it up you can just work on an area when the mood takes. Great job! Looking forward to seeing more progress on this layout.

Regards

Tony

As I now have 2 Class 22 diesels, 3 x 101 DMU's and one 108 DMU, rather guiltily I've decided to add a MPD to Claywell's shed, not sure how to fit it in but this is my initial thoughts, any suggestions gratefully appreciated.

Note the short head shunt just to the left of the proposed addition and above the proposed extension wording can't go any further as it backs onto a a main river.

Hope there's a strong set of buffers on that piece of track, Caz :worried:
Just a thought, though. If you are one of the few who fit the detailing parts to one end of your diesels, how about accessing the MPD via the turntable such that the detailed ends are always where you want them? This would also apply if one end was fitted with the Easi Shunt couplings.
