Looking interesting - I see various elements comng together now. One question (sorry if I missed this before) - but the small station centre towards the bottom - is it a goods station or loco fuelling stop or what ?).
Looking forward to progress on this.

Wow - that's amazing. Great scope for modelling large stations / junctions / panoramas in a small space ... but image ballasting or painting rails, you'd need a microsope !

On the OO v. N 'detail' argument -

I'd say it's a debate about micro-detail v. macro detail.

Do you prefer the micro-details of rivets, house numbers and blades of grass - or the macro-detail of sweeping countryside, cityscapes and google-earth views of stations and yards.

Thanks for all your replies and encouraging comments - much appreciated. I do like Southern and wish there was more RTR available. Longer term (my next layout, one day) I fully intend to get into scratch building and work more fine scale. Ideally I'll have some third rail EMUs alongside steam. If an...

The illustration and calligraphy of the track plan and impression of the station are delightful.

Are they your own ?

Looking nice mate - particularly like your open-baseboard construction. Neat job.

BTW - your avatar - you're not the guy that recently fell asleep on the tracks at Epsom are you?
