The talented Dave has been in touch.
But this time he’s put me in touch with one of his pals – his video is at the bottom.
But first, some pics from Alasdair:

And now on to Jim’s layout. What a video!
“Info: i used to model the gwr & br many years ago but when a good friend of mine started his attic railway i got the bug again he sadly passed away with his project just started this was a very sad time so i thought i would finish his dream layout in my attic with his fleischmenn trains i pursched from his brother as no one wanted them .
My attic railway took a lot of planing as i wanted a dust free attic with a ring main power with 12 plug scockets .this was completed in may 2010 with the help of one of my friends & the model rail project was born,it took around two years to complete.
The layout which still has no name is based in germany on the db but i run u.s stock as well, as i love all trains all eras any thing go’s e.g electric,gas turbine,steam,diesel.
The layout is like a big number 9 with a big 12foot terminus.
The layout is all dcc with most locos haveing sound. the layout has around 100 lights installed.
There is also a stand alone narrow guage system which runs on the inner edge of the layout which the younger generation use.
The next stage is automation linked to a p.c. & the main command center.
That’s all this time. Please do keep ’em coming – just mail me with your pics / videos / tips and tricks.
