Superb Caz. Better than many of the exhibition layouts I have seen! :thumbsup:
Photographs are the only way to see first hand just how well it has turned out. :camera: Can't wait for video.  :P

Keep up the good work and encourage us other modellers to get on with their layouts! :smiley-laughing:

Awesome stuff. I love the tunnel effect. I'd seen that done for platforms and locos in OO but that tunnel in N is superb as an effect.

I'm pondering using a different speaker for my DMU - I too found the Digitrax one really lacking in bass. The steam is excellent although I think you need to have words with that pannier driver about braking technique 8)

not my era but a simply stunning layout and really enjoyable vids. As EP commented - the tunnel smoke idea was really clever and looked great - I will follow this thread with interest - Good Stuff!

Glad you enjoyed the videos, hope to do some better quality ones soon.  Almost all the locos on the layout have been fitted with loco lamps using the 0604 SMT leds wired into the decoder.  Likewise, all the coaches are fitted with lights and people, the guards van's have rear lamps, again using the 0604 SMT leds.

Thanks EP, coming from you that's a real honour.   Re the DMU sound, since the video was shot I've been in and redone the sound files to give a bit more umph, what didn't help in the vids was that out of camera shot was a steamie idling all the time and masking some sounds.  If I could afford it, I'd probably re-sound the DMU's using one of the CT or Zimo sound decoders but for now the good old trusty cheap Digitrax will have to do.
