Installed a few of my street lights from Layouts4u this evening, powered off an old H&M controller. It's a shame i havn't got a road surface, more fences or grass yet :lol: The two vehicles are the Routemaster bus (it's time travelled!) from Oxford diecast and the new truck that im going to re-paint:

I like the look of the Dapol MK3s, may be tempted to ditch my Farish ones on Fleabay and get some shiny new Dapol ones!

They are very nice coaches, interiors, light bar ready, smooth running, simples!
