Here's a few more piccy's just to show it's not all picture perfect and still under construction.

Signalling is colour light on the main lines with the new Dapol signals on the branch.  Once the new Dapol bracket signals arrive then some of the colour lights could be replaced.

I really like your layout. When I first saw your track plan, I was very sceptical. But you succeed in making a over-cowded track plan into a very realistic look layout. Great vision, great job! I like it a lot!  8) 8) 8)

Thanks Mark, the train has to know what platform they're going to don't they - although it's always platform 2 as you cant get working numbers that small yet!   :beers:

I am very impressed with your layout. But I've a question about the smoke. At the tunnel entrance, do you have a lot of residue of the smoke on your layout? Is there any oily film you can notice, or is the smoke completely clean without any residue effect? What brand of smoke-liquid do you use?

Hi Michiel,

Glad you liked the layout, still a lot to do though, especially more ballasting  :(

The smoke generator is about 12cm inside the tunnel between the 2 tracks.  Access is by lifting up the warehouse above the tunnel where a hole has been drilled to allow a pipette to reach the generator and refill as needed.  I've not noticed any residue so far but I've only had in operation for about a month and then only when a train goes through the tunnel so perhaps early days yet.

I obtained both the generator and oil from Peters Spares, the generator is the117, the biggest one they do (I think), see http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SEUTHE-No-117E-SMOKE-GENERATOR-UNIT-NEW-/320925007372?pt=UK_Trains_Railway_Models&hash=item4ab89efe0c#ht_1628wt_1110 and the oil can be found at http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MODEL-TRAIN-SMOKE-OIL-MEGA-STEAM-COAL-FIRED-STEAM-SMELL-60ml-/320809909875?pt=UK_Trains_Railway_Models&hash=item4ab1c2be73#ht_2656wt_1110

As it's a DCC layout it is driven via one of the outputs of a CML DAC20 accessory decoder which in turn is triggered when a train enters the section.

Hope this helps

Is this with transponding to detect the train type or do diesels just smell funny?(*)

No I don't use transponding the Railroad & Co software keeps track of where each locomotive is.  I then set up the block to only trigger the smoke when a steamie is running on the schedule, diesels don't trigger it but looking at some real life diesels I've seen I could probably use it for some of them, that is if I ever buy any.  The only diesels on the main line are the 101 & 108 DMU's although I might buy a Class 22 to go with the CCT van and recreate the train shown on the Fairford Branch website.  Oh, I'd forgotton I have another Diesel on pre-order, I'm going to use Rule 1 to run the Blue Pullman I  ;)

Great looking layout, wow indeed. Can't wait to see more. Almost seems a shame to remove the colour signals. :thumbsup:
