Entry now submitted and thread title edited to include the layout's actual name. It will be at the Kettering exhibition tomorrow along with some of my other micro layouts and dioramas including my other CBC The Visitor. At the last minute some carefully applied conductive paint ( https://www.bareconductive.com/ ) seems to have cured the point issues but tomorrow I shall see how effective it really is. Details of the exhibition here: http://www.kdmrs.org...xhibition18.htm .

The carbon based conductive paint worked brilliantly. The black bit close to the rails shows where it has been applied - not too obtrusive compared to metallic conductive paints. It effectively allows the underside as well as the edge of the rail to be used for electrical contact. Care should be taken not to apply too much and create a permanent short, and to build up the necessary thickness carefully.WP_20180918_12_27_07_Pro.jpg WP_20180918_12_27_15_Pro.jpg

Last week I took some photos outside in natural light and with a camera rather than a phone. Three of these have been submitted as part of the entry but here are some of the others.

Just a few photos from Kettering, showing the new stick and showing the picture frame in a better way, as well as how the layout fitted in to my overall display.

And this is what the back of the layout looked like after a day of operating gravel trains... :)

Can’t say too much yet as I need to confirm a few details but seems I’ve been invited to do this again next year - very happy as it was a great show and fortunately all my layouts behaved for the duration.
