    Hi all. I've only been modelling for about 5 years,it came about with my first layout. One which became unworkable so it was chopped up and a new structure built.

    As you can see it was cluttered but not bad for a first attempt.

    The second and current one I wanted to look pleasing even in its framework. The second pic is from a few years ago,I'll post more when Im more organised. :)

    Regards,Frame.

    Cheers guys,its OO gauge code 75 which means ....I think that in close ups it looks more realistic. :) But Im no expert,just like tinkering with stuff.

    There is/will be a continuous O gauge underneath to go with the Dinky/Corgi type toy town that languishes under there

    Proper job!

    I've found a video of my old layout.



    You may want to turn the sound up to hear it start and pull away.



    I do miss this layout.

    Cheers,Frame.
