Re: Proper music

Certainly a wide variety of styles there!
A lot of the songs and artists sound familiar.

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Nice touch having one of the horses with a coat on.
As an aside, driving home from Whitby today we saw a horse tethered in the middle of a roundabout near Thirsk.
Would make an interesting cameo!

Re: Wykeham - Somewhere in the south!

Lovely collection of locos.
I especially like the A4. Also interesting to see Flying Scotsman with smoke reflectors.

Re: Road surface material

I used printed card from Metcalfe, but Emery paper or wet and dry may be better as it has a bit of texture.
To try to make mine a bit more realistic, I bought a sheet of manhole and drain covers from Sankey Scenics.

I have used both the Peco railbuilt buffers and the sleeper built ones and both are simple to fit to the tracks.
