The town area looks great! 8) The scenery around the older style house at the bottom of the picture is nicely done.

That Crompton looks the business! :shock:

Keep up the good work!

Hi mate

Excellent stuff in the town area.

But is that the right spacing between the fence sections on the platform? And is that a prototypical shade of green for that car? ;)

Catcha later mate :lol:

You know it isn't ;-)

I got hold of a new piece of editing software and was having a play with pic in pic so made a wee video of PC control with JMRI. Its not the greatest video and i didn't spend ages syncing it up totally but you'll get the drift..

Class 108s

My thoughts on any DCC system that can't be linked with a PC:

Pointless!

Even if you don't use it [pc] all the time the advantages are plain to see

Cheers
Michael

Looking good Michael!!

I like the video very much. Great to see the prossess with the PC and the superimposed shots of the DMU pulling away. Look forward to seeing more.

Best Regards

BILL.

I say you've got your work cut out there! Bloomin marvelous layout! Wish I had that amount of room. Nice control set up too, signalling should be fun!

Nice work Mumbles - and I'm going to watch the DCC vid again later ...

I hadn't realised you were continuing to develop this layout as well as the garage layout ... so that's two large layouts you're going to have, you lucky man :shock:
