Hornby R711

Hello Happy Members!
Has anyone ever built the Hornby R711 trakmat layout (with or without the trakmat) ? As everyone knows, I'm not looking for realism. A lot of forum members are better than me for that. All your comments, advices and criticisms will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I prefer the design seen on the 1978 and 1979 Hornby catalogues. That one you have shown will work fine, but I need a little something more interesting for me to work with. But like you say. If you like it, go for it, especially if you find it fun!

Do you have some pics of these layouts ? They can give me a lot of ideas.
