Its looking good and your progressing well.

I hope you don't mind if I give you a helpful tip.

When taking pictures of your layout ,tidy up the layout first and remove some of the rubbish, paint cans glue pots etc that accumulate whilst your building it.

After all your hard work you deserve a good picture, as an example I would have put this picture in the next Virtual tour, if the tools left on the base board where not in shot.

It would have been a perfect picture, if you had dressed the shot, say by having a loco entering the shed.

I hope you don't mind me passing on these thoughts.

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

Not trying to sound rude but is this better. Also in the backgroun you can see the room iam set up in. In the future should i try and hide the room?

Thats excellent, yes the room in the background doesn't help the picture.

There are a few things that can be done to remove the back ground, the easiest is to use a pale blue cloth, as a back scene to hide the room.

Another way is to set the camera focal length to a position were the back ground is out of focus.

Or use can use a picture soft wear program like paint shop pro to alter the picture, like this were the background has been blured

Image

That is now an excellent picture IMHO I hope this helps you create better pictures because your excellent layout is worth the effort.

aye, that is a good tip, nice pic too
the eye is drawn to the guys in the loco
another way of getting rid of background is by not lighting it, using lighting just on layout or a flash in low light, although flashes tend to bleech out shots sometimes and leave only the very foreground objects lit by them

just what i was about to say .....i've got a gradiant that looks about half that steep and my engines struggle with it with just 3 coachs on ...........apart from that , if the engines like your gradiants , then my god thats a brilliant layout design and i cant wait to see the finish* thing

* ok so its never finished , theres always little nick nacks that are allways being added etc lol

The gradient goes up 10cm (4inc) high in 120cm (47inc) and my train (smoky Joe) goes up it with 3 small carriages.
