Your making progress Brian - will this layout run around the room? Sorry - just looked at your original posting and you say "circuit".

Yes it’s the same baseboards. Just one circuit and less points. O gauge points are very long and you can’t fit many in.

HI WTD. Is the layout going to be set in South Wales (Diamond Anthracite wagon), or any where else?

Reason is I have a couple of '0' gauge road transport wagons in Cumbrian liveries spare.

I hadn’t really thought of a location but South Wales would be good. My wifes dad was from Swansea.

What are the wagons?

A 'Lowther Park, Cumbria delivery van and an Eddie Stobart delivery van. I'll take couple of pictures and post tomorrow.

In the process of relaying a section of track. 14XX slows down on a part of it and the 08 derails. Curve a trite too sharp. Doh! Good job my glue mix on the ballast is very weak, it all came off easily.

Bit like the old saying measure it twice cut it once. Test it twice ballast it once.

Hi WTD Pictures of the two cans. One has a rather tired box. The inner box is okay. The other van is unboxed.

Thank you very much for the offer but I think they are a bit old for my period late 50’s early ish 60’s. I used to collect those but sold them at a toy fair, still have a few somewhere in the attic. Once again many thanks.

No problem. I thought they may be too old. :)
