Great photo - looks like an interesting layout to operate. I have always ben fascinated by the Great Central, very individual railway.

Keep up the good work

This Signature Left Intentionally Blank, but since I have written this and I intended to do it, this Signature is intentionally not blank. Paradox or What?

Thanks Jim, I was lucky enough to grow up close to this part of the line, hence me modelling it and from a modelling point of view, a great line to run as there was such a variety of trains and locos pulling them. I am working in the period 1955 to 1965, so this will allow all sorts of modelers licence with more than a tad of realism attached. GWR, Midland and LNER all running together made for a colourful day out train spotting.

The best for last, I have now peered at every layout posted on this thread, currently. I must say your wild life photography skills really come in to play here. You capture essences in a most engaging manner, if I may say. That last photo of the train, appearing to be mounting the grade, really did it for me, as well.
I don't care what they say. I believe in Nessie.
