not too bad so far , a little bit more work and adding some different grasses etc and it should look ok i think.

Thanks Dave


Unfortunately i am having major problems running these on any part of my layout , they derail regularly even on perfect straights , the coupling mechanism between the wagons is not ideal i think , just a plastic bar with no give in it .
So at the moment not too happy and don't know what to try next.
I must say the quality and detail is awesome just wish i could get them to run properly

Thanks for your input Mark , been playing with these for a while now and found one loop they will run on with sime adjustments to the pointwork. They are really temperamental and dont like any sort of s bends even really mild ones . Still can not work out why they derail on some straight sections but at least i have them running and they are awesome ;-)
