Thanks for the nice feedbacks. But Flakmunky, layout envy? You are also building a very nice gem of a layout, I've seen. Impressive!   ;)

Funny thing is, though, I wanted rolling countryside, not a built up urban centre... Which is where I have ended up!  ???


This is why I have layout envy! Your scenic work looks great!

Well, you are in charge!  ;) One or 2 tracks less, leave out a few houses at the top row, and start planting those big and small trees, sew the grasses and start sculping some rocks in stead of a few of your arcading walls. I see a lot of possibilities to make your layout a lot more rural. whatch how adding vegetation can change the total look an feel of your layout. But non the less, it looks great already  ;)

At teh risk of hijacking your thread, I've just posted a track plan extension for my layout that I have been toying with... This would be a largely rural.

Hi Michiel,

needless to repeat this is an excellent little layout...

Looking at some of the small souvenirs I brought from my last visit in Gent, I found this postcard I bought in a bunch of tramway related cards. I've been clicking through your archives and there are quite some pictures of the station building, however I didn't find this concrete postcard so I thought it might be of interest.



Best regards, Matthias

Hello Matthias,

that is indeed the main building of Brussels-North station in I think the early 1930's (and destroyed in 1955). It's a nice, interesting picture from just after the period I am aiming to model it. If you don't mind, I'm taking a copy of it into my personal archive? Thanks for sharing this picture.

best regards,
Michiel

Hello Michiel,

I'm glad you like it, please feel free to make use of the scan however you like. I'm really looking forward to see this one modelled in N gauge some time.

Matthias
