The more I see of Dave’s layout, the more envious I get.

Anyhow, here’s the latest from him:

Don’t forget to have a look-see at the latest ‘ebay cheat sheet‘.

    I give up ! – There are no more words of congratulation that can be given.
    This layout should be on television as the background for a series about Railways (ala “On The Buses”) or for kiddies programmes or any other needing such a superb background.
    Heaven knows what the value is,(way beyond my pocket), but I hope it NEVER gets broken up because that would be a terrible sin. Thanks again Dave for letting us share this incredible modelling show.

    Hi Dave.

    What make of platform do you use in the station?

    It looks like Peco, but I wasn’t sure.

  17. I would like to know if his layout he built is for his home or something he built for a museum or other venue

  18. Is this layout for his home or some other venue. Very impressive

    Excellent layout, I dream of something like it but haven’t got that far. I’m from Canada and worked for CN Rail, do marvel at the small size of the freight cars.

    Very impressive, keep up the great work.

    How do you print the paper cut outs ?

  23. steve wolf smith says:

    awesome this man is my modeling hero ..

  24. David Tuson says:

    Some years ago I planned to build my railway in the loft but two reasons stopped me – it got to over 50 degrees centigrade in summer, and what would I do if we decided to move house. So I built it in sections in the garage and would occasionally join them together for a running session. Earlier this year we moved house and this has a large basement that I am using a big part of to build a permanent railway. I really envy Dave as he seems to have “pots of money” to build a fantastic layout. Mine is insured for $4,000 couldn’t even hazard a guess at what Dave’s is worth given the present retail prices.
    Keep up the videos Dave, gives me (and I’m sure others) lots of encouragement and ideas.

    The coffee ground ballast and tree tips are AWESOME!!!!!!

  26. Peter Macdonald says:

    To the anonymous poster: Actually the world’s first ever suspension bridge from which all others are copied was: a railway bridge at Niagra in the USA- look it up.
    One in Hong Kong is the world’s longest.
    But perhaps someone should tell Hornby as that suspension bridge is from them – I have one also.
