I've been looking forward to a video of this layout with sound and it did not disappoint!
(would have liked to have seen the 37 though)

Wellfracombe mk 2 made its first show apperance yesterday at our club open day.

Having only scrubbed the 6ft station board back wednesday (I thaught the show was next week!) I was quite pleased with the way it ran and was recieved, though I dont think the Sr stock was popular in a show in S.Wales!

SWD Ivatt steam sound loco was star of the day.

A loco with no sound chip? Might as well be unpainted!

Excellent stuff. The station area looks superb and oozes atmosphere, whilst the station throat and approaches have some depth with the different level tracks and good scenery. A job well done mate

Cheers

Saw this layout at Barry yesterday, and must say it looks even better firsthand than it does in the photos. Very nice job indeed.

You've definately convinced me to go ahead and try an incline in my planned layout, and you (as well as the others on display) also helped me convince the wife that model railways are much more than just a toy.

So thank you x2 :D

Great stuff Simon, would have loved to see it yesterday but sadly i was working so didn't have enough time to make the journey down to Barry!

Anymore planned exhibitions for the layout in the future?

Cheers mate

Excellent work and cracking pictures, I do like the way you have laid out the track with inclines.

Thia layout is not going out as far as I am concerned. In fact, i may well put it up for sale?

I only built it to run some of my Steam locos that have sound chips and although i enjoyed yesterday, (although i was knackered from being up most of friday putting finishing touches to the layout) I think its diesel for me. Steam Sound is miles better than no sound but i enjoy the diesels more.

My Diesel depot is out at the 2 day valley show 5&6 Jan, sodbury vale late january at Taunton in October.
