3 videos which were taken over a few days on general testing of the layout. Hopefully in the coming weeks there will be a number of visitors and new videos coming on stream.
There will also be some improvements to the layout as well as back scenes, name boards... ect...

Thanks for the comment :) The Q1 by Hornby and the West country Blackmoor Vale are really great runners, and the west country is particularly a quiet runner...and very smooth a low speed really do recommend both, cant go wrong!

Just caught up on your layout again. Looking very good! There is a shot on your website of the Horsted Keynes looking toward the station from the bridge that looks very much like my desktop photo from the same perspective, so you have definitely got the look/feel right! 8)

while the terrier racing was going on, Ive added some minor detail changes to the layout. I ve added some dirty ballast patches at the stop places at the station which is quite commonly seen. I used water colours and and water to do this very simple and easy to do. Still working on Back scenes at the moment for Horsted, and while sorting Horsted I also started wiring the lights up again and now Horsted has 4 new working lights.
