Great stuff Chris, by the looks ( and sounds ) of it you are having FUN :D :D :D .

By the way nice to see you bought THE BEST RULER in the world...The Maun Safety rule, doesn't slip, doesn't get cut with the knife, and most importantly....somewhere safe for your fingers when you are cutting :shock: :shock: :shock: ...I wouldnt be without mine..(fingers OR ruler :!: :!: :!: )

look forward to more to follow

hay

last night it came to me...
Why there is all that track and Sidings!

the middle of my layout is a Railway Museum!
ware all the trains in this Museum are still in used

the Pendolino is the train that stop at the close Big town "peco platform"

then a train from the Museum is used to run ppl from the Big town to the Museum station

not the same train some times it is a NSE some times it a BR blue/Gray whatever the Museum got can be used!

the Museum orso send stock out to other places to show there " this will let me add and remove trains as i like"

the Museum motto is if it don't Run or get used, we don't show it!

"what do you think how that all sound?"

ha ha, yeah, that's a cool idea mate! you'll definately have to be running a Stroudley A1X 0-6-0 at the museum though! :wink:

...must admit, i did wonder how you would get on with the platform/station issue ...it's a very busy layout my friend! :lol:
