Hi Darren,

Good to see some more pics of the layout.

Can I ask a question? Did you consider painting the rails? I did on my 6x4 prior to ballasting and I'm not sure it helped with running afterwards - although it could be I just need to keep things cleaner!

This is not a critisism - I see a lot of layouts that I like that do not have painted rails - and some I like that have. I just wondered whether you have considered it and what your thoughts were?

keep up the good work - and photo's

hi James, i have thought about painting the rails but i was worried about the running of the loco's afterwards so i never tried it, thou like you said i have seen them done on other layouts and they look good, maybe it will be something i'll try on Lordsbridge MK3 :D

just a few more pics seen as i havent got much more done on the layout, here's my favourite loco.

Great layout Darren, just a few quick questions though:
Do you use Hornby Track?
Is it DC?
And what radius are your curves?

Keep up the great work :wink:
