Jim’s been in touch with his N scale freight layout:
“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 N scale freight 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 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.
You can see Jim’s Union Pacific youtube here.
Now on to Alasdair:
“Hi al, just a few new pictures of my layout now,I am looking for a 060 pannier tank with dcc sound and lights fitted,so if you hear of one for sale I would be very interested.
thanks again and best Wishes
