    Hi Gents,
    Thanks for your interest. This is an 0 gauge layout running through 5 sheds covering an area of 1500 square feet. 30 trains run simultaneously through 17 stations they are automatically controlled. I have a track plan but have been unable to upload for some reason but I have forwarded it to the Trainboard by email perhaps they will post it for me. This layout has taken me 15 years to construct.
    Roy.

    I actually enjoyed hearing those wheels clicking on rail joints.

    Nice layout. I think you had posted a while back and I watched it then, but the second viewing was just as good, and yes the wheel noise is fantastic.

    New Duchess from Ace Trains of London

    I thought the streamlined Coronation was a masterpiece.
    The new Duchess is a work of art.

    Fabulous. Love seeing those wonderfully painted streamlined locomotives.

    At Vale Jct, behind those locomotives, is your backdrop a photograph? If so, the lighting when taken was perfect.

    Thanks BoxcabE50,
    The back drops are wall murals.
    I attached a camera to the rear of the Mid/day Scot,
    running over the new section of quadruple track.
    Complex wiring up continues on the slow lines.
    This is a taster.



    Enjoy Roy.
