Ah, bit too soon for me to get everything together. I'll probably make it anyway, just not for the challenge.

Ballast is down on mine & a pikestuff single road depot is being ordered in the morning to say i started my layout just over a week ago its coming along very well nothing yet has gone wrong well happy i think its going to have EWS locos on the layout too as i am finding it very very hard to turn down a class 66.

That looks really good. I'm often tempted to build a small OO layout like this to go along side my N gauge layout. Thought-provoking stuff, thanks Tinsley/Adam.
