Eric’s been in touch again – and you all know how much I love an update (his last post is here).
Well it doesn’t seem long since I sent in my last update on this layout which for all is in N gauge.
I am not going to bore everyone with all the specs again. But this is getting near or is completed.
We now have people and lots vehicles on the streets including funeral procession and a couple of caravans and scooters there are quite a few more trees and bushes in place to make it more lifelike. Added to that my total lights have reached 169 which I will do as my final update on this layout, the last lights are yard and signal box lights
This video has running sessions from different angles with a range of carriages and engines, even my first set of royal mail coaches that are now over 30 years old which I normally use for fitting clip on track cleaning pads to, they do a grand job at keeping the tracks clean with a few drops of methylated spirit on them.
I took the running session using a small tripod so not jerky as update 1, after the running sessions there is a close up tour of the town and yes it is a little unsteady at times but not too bad, it’s short too.
Yes in the tour you can see all the joins in the boards and I make no apologies for those as all the higher boards are fully removable to give me access to the tracks and wiring below which is essential for maintenance and accessing any derailments (thankfully hardly any of those to date).
All that is left is to say I hope you enjoy the video.

“Lee I have been receiving your messages for over a year and really like them. Many tips have been very valuable.
In June of this year I started to build a new layout modeled after a small Connecticut town where some road work was going on. One piece of equipment is not to scale because I cannot find it . Finishing up a few scenery issues and fine tuning the running two trains. I might add a few smaller buildings but not now.
Notice your card structures in the background.
Also solving a few small electric issues .
Thanks for all you do .
That’s all today folks. A big thanks to Eric and Frank. It just goes to show it’s all about rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck in.
