Hi, and welcome (back) to the N gauge fold.

I like the track plan. Having the hidden area at the back also means less to have to 'scenerise'

Good luck with the progress and look forward to seeing the progress,
John.

Like the videos - and the layout too - especially the cutting and "box girder" bridge in front of the tunnel.

What are the green carriages that the little tank engine is pulling in the 2nd video?

As everyone else has said - brilliant work.

Hi all, no progress since before Easter on the layout. I've been lacking in motivation to be honest - not being helped by England's dismal showing in the cricket world cup! Hopefully I'll get the proverbial kick up the butt soon and get back up to speed. Thanks for the pm about the videos, Michael. ...

Just check for clearances by running the longest wheel-based stock you intend to run (Probably your longest carriage or diesel) and check clearance by running them over places where stock needs to be able to pass each other without fouling, e.g on a loop or double track curve. Don't know whether yo...
