Very nice indeed. :) I love the idea of a part exposed tube line under the front of a layout. Very cool. 8)

Very clever and an excellent model!!!
One things missing though... the crammed in like a sardine tin commuters sweating like the preverbial Christmas turkey. :lol:
I may be quite crazy but I always loved the smell of the London Underground. :o
Thanks

Really nicely done. As said, a very smooth running layout.

Too limited a market, it's as simple as that... Same as other areas such as Scottish stuff, Southern Railway EMUs (which would probably have greater demand) and narrow gauge... Lets face it most kids wouldn't be the least interested in such stock...

There's always hope, though, as there has been some interesting stuff come out over the past few years... The thing you have to remember is that you aren't just talking about a single loco but a whole trains which adds considerably to the cost of production...
