    I seriously think if I ever leave N scale, I would go O. The level of detail possible is astounding!

    @danielb:

    Great work, Sir. You have a keen eye for the details that make a very convincing total.

    Very inspiring.

    Greetings everyone!

    It's been a while, but I am officially moved into my new home, and I've settled into my new layout room with gusto!

    I now have the space to have Piedmont Blues set up permanently, with space to expand it around walls. I'm over the moon.



    Taking advantage of this, I used the new space to work on the layout a lot more to get it ready for the Seaboard Southern Exhibition that took place last Saturday.

    I took a few photos from the day. Enjoy!

    Last night didn't see much progress on the layout, though I did finally manage to get round to replacing a broken truck-mounting pin on a Norfolk and Western bay window caboose, so that's another one to weather up and add to the fleet.



    I also removed the cast on handrails and grab irons from a Williams centre cupola caboose kit and base painted it red. I also fitted some Intermountain (?) trucks. This will be getting some SOUTHERN decals to represent an ex-Savannah & Atlanta cab.

    Cheers chaps. Progress on the caboose has come on over the last few days, but foolishly I didn't take any photos before I came to work. D'oh!

    Not a lot to add for now, I've been busy with other things. Ford has taken the centre module away to work on the wiring for the Arduino, and is planning to mount a dedicated power supply under the board to handle the next stage of the lighting, sound and animation for the layout.



    I do have some photographs of some of my purchases from Seaboard Southern though. First, three TTX 86' flat cars from Jason Dickie:











    These will eventually become tri-deck open sided autoracks. Nothing like making life easy, eh?



    Finally, a Lionel(?) truss bridge I got for 10 from one of the other traders at the show:







    I'm going to have some fun with this one when the next stage of the layout comes along.



    More updates when I'm able.
