It's great to see such an ambitious version of something we all tend to compress and water down..... out of necessity in most cases. The structures are extremely impressive.   Well done guys __________________________________________   ??? posted on Sun Jun 07, 2009 9:28 pm   pharrc20 wrote: :thup Thats

The main plan is 28ft long for the track layout but a small plan is something that we most do so that it can be posted. Diesels will be run on the layout, the running period is from steam days to present day. Class 20's, 31's
