I'm in the "bit too busy" camp. I think it's the loops at the top. However I think it's fair to say that given a certain amount of space we'd all come up with a different "favourite" design. It's your layout and you'll be the one using it, so go with what makes you happy. I very ...

Very nice! Did the station which the Black Fives were in have two tracks in the past? The station is Penybont on the Shrewsbury to Swansea line. It's 3 miles north of Llandrindod Wells.

BrotherWolf's Rly Pics Updated 12/12/2013 Oliver Cromwell

Most of my railway pics are on slides from the 80's, however here are some I did for the http://www.geograph.org.uk/ website.
