Hello,

during the weekend I could work a little bit in the new railway room. And I was able to film the progress.

Very interesting, Markus. Looking forward to seeing some trains running. The fiddle yard and sector plates look impressive.
The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

Coming along very nicely, Markus! It will be a cracker of a layout when finished.   :thumbsup:

Many thanks, Markus, for this update. I see that you're now modelling a later time period than before?

Hello Chris,

no I'm modelling multiple time periods. From the buildings and vehicles I focus on the early 60s with revomable vehicles from the 50s to the 80s. For the rolling stock I've got rolling stock for the early 60s, late 60s/early 70s, 80s/early 90s, and late 90s/early 2000s. At the moment I work mainly on the modern rolling stock, because I will visit an operating session at Haeckmans Penzance layout. And we will run different ears during the session. From the late 60s to the modern era.

Thanks for the detailed explanation, Markus. That makes complete sense and more operating fun. Similarly, I can run stock from c.1956 to 1967 and even later, if I wish, although the station signs are out-of-date much beyond the mid-1970s.

It looks as though your layout is in the lap of the Time Lords!

About two weeks ago I attended an operating session on my friend Matthias Great-britN modular layout with his Penzance and Parbourne stations.
It took some time to edit the video, but here is the result
