I will have a go with the video later on the OO layout and my 'sound' chipped locos, I also want to try out my newly aquired lighted coaches so tune in later!

It's looking 'top drawer' :roll: mate, well impressed. Have you thought about installing one of those miniature in cab cameras, I've seen them advertised in model railroader.

You could do with a wee switcher for the mine http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=016&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=260085020026&rd=1&rd=1
might fit the bill

Just brilliant pics and video, so realistic, just how powerful is that loco in the vid? I am so sad I had to watch it twice to count 21...yes 21 wagons on that? Is this normal in N gauge cos it looked ruddy awesome!

Great stuff and thanks for sharing, nice puddycat by the way....

whilst some may hate the US stuff I can't believe the 'strength' of this little loco. It has pulled those 21 hi cubes (approx 850 feet in real terms!) with no bother from walking pace to flat out!! Last night I hitched up my entire stock of wagons totalling 32 and had no probs at all. The difference being with these american locos is that they are a flywheel motor driving all wheels and are very heavy. I have a GF diesel that struggles with 3 coaches!! :cry:

Lovely stuff Steve. Glad to see I'm not the only one constantly at logger heads with the Feline Health And Safety Executive. They're always shutting down my lines without notice and never offer any more than a cursory 'Miaow' by way of explanation. :roll:

Cheers mate

Cheers for that Tim, this little b***ger has taken to sitting in front of the sideboard layout and watching the train pass, I'm just waiting for him to pounce!!!

Steve, if you get one of the Life Like (or Kato if you're flush) A&B units (both powered) they will actually draw a (scale) half mile drag of cars at a complete crawl (I estimated 15mph with 40 cars behind my E8 A&B). 8 wheel pick on both units, you'll never need to worry about point stall again!! Even better, they hauled that lot up a 1:24 grade at the same speed.

God I can't wait to get started on the new layout :x
