Orange-red a shed
The red triangles are the "Recycling" surface to be less tight curves
On paper here goes, is the reality of testing miniature size

Marc,

That is a great looking layout but this thread is a bit of a tease.

Do you have more photos?

Looks lovely! And forgive my curious eye but are those gems from the board game Niagra in that wagon?

We're gonna need a little rolling stock...and a lot of luck!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

I have made a rash commitment to build something for an exhibition next March here in Sydney, Australia.

I have some APAs, and your little layout just switched the lights on for me! I might just be lazy and do a direct steal of your track plan.
:D :D :D

Love it!

cheers

Thanks!,

Am I right in thinking this will be at Sedan in October, as I think I have seen the name on the exhibitor list.

The loco was make with a base and some pieces from pepper7, the motor come from SMALLBROOK STUDIO (Old style bonneted air compressor)

I have need a articuled loco because in the layout the curves are very strong

you see, the loco has a power outlet at the back-side

Wonderful small layout. I found it in this special Tips and tricks issue of Loco Revue.
Unfortunately, English version is not available, I guess.

I was next to this all weekend at RAMMA, so was watching train going round the loop/crossing at the back. It got a lot of interest.
Got the magazine last week, it is virtually all layouts that exhibited at RAMMA, the 2 challenges in particular.
Still waiting to see photos and video on their website, although there is some already on YouTube, and the video listed in the magazine.
