Ah yes, the top one is good - it's got my proposed track plan in it!

Bottom one... so-so. Not really my 'bag'.

I'm glad you've started your layout Dynamite, you were starting to sound like the Judaen Popular Peoples Front, an awful lot of talk but no action :D "It's happening Reg, it's really happening!!" :lol:

I been wanting to start the layout for the last two weeks but i have had really bad pains in my shoulders and lower back so haven't been able to do any work on the layout,and i have just been buying things ready for when i do start and i don't have to wait for things to come.

Going to order some more electronic stuff from www.rapidelectronics.co.uk over the weekend for my layout as they are the cheapest i have found on the net for stuff,sorry Saslord but they are cheaper than you are and i know you need to make a profit on the stuff you get in but they are cheaper.

Plus i might order afew more model railway books off the net.

It's fair enough and a personal choice that goes back to the discussion on another thread about British or Foreign made.

Don't feel guilty but I guess support where you can!
