They are for the engine shed, the same long 2 road one as was on the previous layout. By the way, the diagram is not to scale.

Dan

Amazing stuff - I was really surprised just how much track you've managed to fit in and I just can't believe it's O gauge! It looks really good, and glad to see the third incarnation coming along well.

All the best

By lowering the working height you have got some serious room to play with up there.
Looks like it is well on the way to being a very impressive set up!

Didn't have much time up there today before work, couldn't resist having a play instead of carrying on building,

The first picture absolutely does it for me, I hope they make more appearances in the future. Either that, or you need a few diesels yourself. :wink:

I have a Heljan Western on order, right now for me steam is the priority but my father does have a good diesel collection that will visit from time to time and sometimes even the odd one stay on loan for a while. The class 37 is on loan currently and I hope to make good use of it, the sound chip is immense, it sounds brilliant, expect a video soon.

You know I'm loving the shots of the 37, the TG amphibious vehicles are a lovely lighthearted addition.
