Looks like an excellent layout, what are your plans - extend?

Lovely buildings, do you have a track plan?

This Signature Left Intentionally Blank, but since I have written this and I intended to do it, this Signature is intentionally not blank. Paradox or What?

Very impressed. :)
That rear building with the white windows must have taken ages! The windows especially remind me of a school I used to go to.
Thanks

Just love the realism of the second photo down with the cargo van silhouetted against the backscene - there's a real sense of depth there.

Is the backscene proprietary or made from own photos?

What track are you using?

Its a commerical backscene I can't remember the brand though
Track is to EM gauge, handbuild points (C&L bullhead and copper clad for the flat bottom stuff) Peco Individulay flat bottom plain track and C&L flexi for sidings

Thanks - the class of the track really shows.
