Three-dimensional lettering on tank is a nice touch.

We have now built the bridge connections enabling trams to pass from Module '1' to Module '2' albeit the connection using Copperclad may well be changed.

Here's Module '1' without Proscenium Arch.

Bridge connection to Module '1'.

Bridge connection to Module'2'.

Module '2' with Proscenium Arch.

Electronic Control system which allows two trams to operate alternately through a 10 phase count after operator has pushed a start button.
In addition this board controls the illumination of bonfire which ultimately flares. At this point Fire Engine/Tender leaves Fire Station, on arrival at bonfire lighting diminishes until fire is 'out' then Fire engine the returns to base.
Concurrently the Roman Candles illuminate sequentially throughout the bonfire sequence.
The fire/firework sequence operates continuously without need for start button for tram to be pushed.

Fibre optic Roman Candles change colour within sequence.

Bonfire lighting.

Bonfire is something I don't recall seeing on that scale berfore.
You know, have some 45mm gauge G trains, Bachmann 4-6-0 and HLW 4-4-0 & 2-4-4, which I would like to put firebox glow through open fire door.
A multicolor flicker circuit is just the thing.

I love the way y'all in UK use the card buildings. They just plain are appealing.
