I'm not really a train fan but that is stunning. I could look at those pics for ages ,esp the top one, that really is something. Well done and thanks for showing it off.

Feel like I could be there, maybe a bit grubbier - or perhaps I just have a dirty memory!

Hello,Jonathan - My full compliments to you on a beautiful looking layout.I love my scale modelling and I also love model railways.We can build our favourite subject in scale model form and put in pride of place in the cabinet or on the shelf but a model railway is 'alive'. 

I can totally relax and unwind by just watching the trains run by.I'm not bothered about digital sound effects or anything like that.I just love to watch and hear the movement of the trains themselves.

Great work on a great subject.I love it.

😉👍 All the best,Paul.

It felt like its never-ending, but hopefully worthwhile!
