Well not one to be picky but I think you need to have a good, also it helps if all the stock is actually on the rails! :?

That first picture threw me with the point motor housings on top of the point! ....track-mat stupid. Once I'd sussed that... Its got a lot of potential. I like the old cars vans and wagons you've got. You've basically got a lot of the extras already that go to making a layout look good. I'll definitely be looking out for some progress pictures once some of the scenery/ballasting is laid and you've had a chance to tidy up.

Hey just caught up with this thread. Looks like you're going to have a nice busy little layout there when you get it finished. Also a good collection of stock you have there!

Yep, busy layout, plenty stock and accessories to run on it and ballasting at great speed. All looking good.

Can't help commenting though that it confirms everything some of us having been saying on another thread about Trackmats. They may be ok if you religiously follow the printed layout, but they start to look damn silly when you start using your imagination and laying out the track the way you want it.

Not a reflection on you Mate. Once your ballasting is done its not going to matter, but that first photo does show how useless the mat is.

Look forward to seeing your next progress report

Stuart
