Yes, I just borrowed the photo, but there is no great need to re-work the locos for fair/country park use, as long as the passengers have seats of appropriate size in the wagons/coaches behind.
With the open wagons that can be a purely temporary arrangement,

A long time ago I built a Gn15 train (one critter and three wagons) but a "German Gn15 master" :twisted: of the Gnatterbox told me that all my work was just a piece of Junk. :evil:

Well stuff them!

Just about anything can be fine. Even prototypical.

Nice. :mrgreen:
How about going a step further and add seats, people and lighting to your 4 wheel coaches like I have done for my forum competition entry. :idea:

Read on from here: - viewtopic.php?f=1&t=50754
And here is the sale for them: - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/oo-gauge-stat ... SwjDZYlaOo

Not sure if the exact circuit I built would work on DC as I run DCC but I am sure one of our members could point you in the correct direction for any amendments of the circuit.

You'll also need DCC Concepts pick-up springs - http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from= ... s&_sacat=0
Product code DCF-PS2.0 2mm versions.

A conductive pen or paint like this:- http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/201730361079? ... EBIDX%3AIT
The seller has upped the price since I bought it to over £15 so I am sure you'll be able to get it cheaper elsewhere

I also changed all wheels to Hornby 4 spoke Wheels.

I would mention that the LED's I've used are yellow. Perhaps warm white LED's would be better? A test I didn't do as I don't have warm white LED's.
Thanks

Thanks for all your kind comments ! :D
The authorities decided to close Kerluk's layout for a while (not too long I hope). "We want this room and we want it now !"
I stored the layout in the garage and waiting for better days... :roll:

By the looks of it you could add small straight track pieces to both the middle and inner loops giving you just a tad more running length. :)
