Just been catching up on this thread, from May! till now and i gotta say, the transformation of your layout has been outstanding! You definately have come on leaps and bounds and i hope you dont take this offencely but its gone from a model railway to almost real-life! It almost reminds me with the amount of 37s you have, of Godfrey Road Depot in Newport in the 1990's...simply the best period by far :wink:

Certainly looking forward to more updates! Cracking Work on a super layout so far!

Cheers for the comments Adam... Really good to know I'm doing something correct... Aim to have plenty more 37's before I'm done also. As for Godfrey Road I shall google that and have a looksy :D Knew nothing about trains, real or modelled before last year...
Scott, I've been tempted to make up a fake guinness train for a laugh! Might just pick up a knackered old Lima on fleabay and get the paint out :lol: Loving the improvised pic there to Chris! :D
Jas.... :D

I can't wait to get something cracking on with Eastport!

the funny thing is we're both heading for having huge collections of only one type of loco at this rate :D
