Hi Andrew. Is that a 61xx 'Big Prairie' lurking with a couple of coaches on your layout I see there?

Regards,
Gavin

Yes it is. I've had it for 5 years and my dad let me borrow some coaches.

I believe Gavin is talking about the tank engine behind the pullman coaches, the large prairie 2-6-2 tank engine.

Hi

Looks like you have a really nice layout coming along there. Based on the original Hornby track pack plan? Maybe you could try and join the siding on the left hand side up with the outside loop. I based my layout on the hornby track plan and decided to join it up to make 3 loops. Really pleased that I did and it allows you to run 3 trains at once. Just a thought, see what you think. Like I say though you have made a great start so far.

See attached trackplan of my layout:

i did think about that but i can still do it now. all i need is another curved point, some more 3rd radius double curves and another controller.
