Thanking you all,

Managed to do the removable village scene in fact this is the last part of the layout, got loads of running time to come soon once i have finished the finer details :D

Had some great running time today with the kids once this part was finished, also saved one of the locos from the scrap heap not sure how but wd40 over the motor area and a few 100 forward reverse techniques seems to have freed something, its been bad for 5 years plus since the DCC was added i am puzzled but fingers crossed its ok for the future.

Howdy do all,

Decided to clear up what I don't need from the layout and put them in the for sale section points, point motors, rolling stock, I managed to sort my best runner out , it was as good as dead, would not work properly it would just lock up randomly this happened for 5 years I tried everything but nothing would work, so in desperate times I got the WD40 and squirted it all over everything I could see including the inner motor around the gears you name it got it, after reverse and forwarding it for 20 of mins it sorted out .

Tried it this morning and yeah it was great happy days I say

Started the fine detailing of the layout made a few walkways with a couple of concrete pads to link up some of the areas, and on it we have wood and metal sheet stock ready to go scratch built by me.

Thanks Timber, I made the village the other day , it slot it into position then can remove to get to to the wires if need be.

It is DCC ;)

Not really thought about the first pictures I will try and update the pics soon thanks for reminding me.
