Default I decided to treat myself

Had a bit of good fortune so I decided to treat myself and change most of my mixed buildings , but I`m not re naming my layout

Its amazing price variation for these items from different shops on line .

I know a layout is never , ever finished but I feel mine is ..... .....can`t think of a word .

Very nice. I like the Hornby Mk2's and the Lima Mk1's you have. I always feel they run better then many modern coaches.
The green coaches in the fifth picture. Are they the ones they did from newsagents repainted? Their roofs look like them a bit.
I like the wide platforms. It is realistic to see nice platform widths.

looks brilliant, I also love those old coaches, I've got some myself.

Love the layout, plus treating yourself is worth it from time to time.

Who knows, I may be a millionaire next week haha.

Cant wait to see more of the layout.

And thank you treating us with such interesting and enjoyable photos. I am always
intrigued by the strong emphasis on passenger service, in British Model Rail. I also
noted a bit of Rock Island has crept into your creation.

With myself, the fascination of British model rail was such that I had to build an
exclusively UK themed layout. However, some rather nice Electrotren has crept in,
though on occasion I have to remove the AC all metal wheel and axle sets.

I decided to have a heritage railway (see old link below ... a few changes have been made ) so I could run what I want, when I want.
I have passenger coaches, dmus, brake van rides and caboose rides.

I have visiting locos too and i have a few old buses, lorries and cars ( Hit Hattons etc in the sales) and a military display.


So all in all i have a lot of fun

Enjoyed the informative video. It almost appears that you placed each particle
of ballast by hand, using a computer aided program. Extraordinarily immaculate.
