NEVER give up! Remember this is my first attempt at a full layout so this is just as much of a learning curve for me as it would be for anyone else. If this provides inspiration then all the better.

Cheers Richard. Saw your post in my fuelling point thread about the oil tanks and thanks for that. I have now deleted fuelling points off my shopping list…

loving the new pics
so whats going to be done on the layout next???
My 2 main priorities at the moment are getting the loco shed finished and replacing a few of the points. The curved points where the loop runs off the mainline and the set of points on the passing loop leading to the 2 sidings are electro-frog, and as I’m running DC this is messing up the running of the inner loop when I have any locos in the depot area or in the passing loop, something I’ve only now found out now I have more than one working loco! I now know the difference between electro-frog and insul-frog but didn’t a few months ago when I first laid the track.
I’m then paying Richard a visit in a few weeks to pick up what’s left from his Old Oak layout – track, fuelling points and a few other bits so this will then contribute to the depot. I’m also getting a soldering iron next week so I can practise wiring up with a view to eventually fitting working lights and signals – inspiration supplied by Richard’s layout! I also have a couple of flashing LED kits to fit to my rolling stock.
