Excuse my ignorance, but what are all the drinking straws (?) for in the earlier pictures. There seems to be one per point - are you using them to channel wires for point switching? I thought to start with you were doing TCS...

P.S. I love a bit of Bully.

they are actually paper clips, they are attached to each point to eliminate wires that would be used for motors.

Ah, cunning! It's the N versus OO thing that makes them look much bigger than they actually are.

Station looks brill, certainly shows off the spacial benefits of N very well! Those passengers are in for a long wait before their train arrives. :P

First gander of this one and I am most impressed. It's a good track layout with plenty of operational potential. And the station building is just right!

I certainly look forward to more shots of your efforts :)

Cheers
