Hi all,

The investigation found that several coal trucks uncoupled, the train did a full loop and collided into these derailing the first train, then the other train on the other track collided into that. 8)

Added more senic bushes to the left of the first picture think it will soon be time for some fences etc next.

Added some more senics to the lakeside.

Your model grows by the day Lee. It is looking very good, loving the pictures.

I personally fly two concepts with OS32 engines in them, one is in a Bell 222 body. Haven't actually flown them for some time due too ill health :(

Looks good Lee, the telegraph poles certainly make a difference. I like the yellowish house in the third picture from last, the drain pipes and guttering really complete the picture :)

Yeah I agree about the telegraph poles, and the hedges and fences too makes a huge difference - it's looking wicked :)

Hi Lee

Great to see how those long sweeping contours are now being finished off with some outstanding weathering and scenics. Any chance of some arty video shots some time soon? :P

Cheers fella

A stunning layout you have there Lee !

Your attention to detail is pretty damn good ! :)

I have watched this layout progress and have always thought what it would look like with a bit of modern stuff coming around those curves !

You have chosen very nice rolling stock anyway !

Cheers :wink:

I think that it is about time that random drug testing is introduced in our sphere of hobbyness. This can be the only explanation as to why you have managed to do so much in such a short space of time. Excellant work Lee. You have really managed to produce a layout that matches your title. All you need to do now is to create large areas of land sealed off to hikers and walkers by having an authentic foot and mouth outbreak.

You have got a pretty dam good layout there, just briefly looking over the pages and all in all,This is by far one of the best 'N' gauge layouts I've ever seen. WELL DONE! :) :D

Hi all,

Thanks alot for the kind words there much appriciated.

First of all there is a Warning to the people i recommended the Netgear XE103 Socket Plug ethernet On entering the shed were my Netgear socket is, it was strangly powered off i did leave it on all day as normal, wondering what had happened i removed the device from the socket and then replaced it back and and wow did it bang, cutting the story Netgear are doing a full product recall on this product. ( No internet in the shed for me for a while).

Anyway managed to work on the trees rearranging and adding some other colours to some of them to give variation in colour.
