Hello Jim

Thank you for your nice comments.

Yes, it's a very ambitious layout for a 'lone wolf' modeller who still works 40 hours a week and has some kind of social life.

I had a retired carpenter come over and help me two days a week to build the baseboards back in 2013. But since then I've done about 98% of the work. I have advisers/helpers on specific topics.........

Bob Perrat advises on DCC issues as I have no experience of DCC.

Peter Morgan helps repair locos I've dropped -oops! Peter has also built the building under construction you can see in one photo.

Al Turner is helping in several ways - he is building the motorway bridge (being built as a construction site) and is taking the lead role with the computer controlled Faller car system which will run along the front of the layout. He will also be part of my operating crew.
