Assuming that the little layout has its own lighting rig, can you describe how it is set up please? If you have any "far away" shots that show the lighting rig and whole layout presentation, could you guys post a couple of suitable piccies please?

Looking through a 2004 copy of Narrow Gauge World I see that Parkside Dundas advertised Bemo OO9 couplings. These come straight or stepped shaft. From the looks of Richards I would say straight shaft.
Is that a rabbit I see before me
it would be nice if the front edge of the layout was finished as a harbour wall rather than the curtain that appears in the photos perhaps a bollard or two to tie a boat up to.
The model still makes me want to quit
Richard Andrews wrote::oops: Yes Ian, thats a very good idea, I shall have to find some thing to make the bollards out of. maybe a couple of those map pins? regards Richard

Sir Briand wrote:Just phoned them and ordered some straight ones. They come in packs of 10. They only had the straight in stock. Of course I ordered them before I had read your post. Ah well
