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.

Wow, the depth of your scenery is brilliant. I love the occasional buildings dotted through the landscape.
