Well, another three evening sessions have now resulted in FULLY inset trackwork :) Building 1 is also stuck down.

I'm going to sort the electrical connections next I think. I have my standard 2 pin din socket so any controller I have can be plugged in

This is moving along quickly. I like the visual effect of the "lines" (not sure what the correct English word is!). The man hole covers etc are a nice final touch.

How do the locos run over the wagon turntables?  Is the wheelbase long enough to stretch over the distance to the live rail?

The bare chassis will get over at speed on DC, once the metal body is on it's a bit better, but with only one wheel set in contact with live rail it's a bit hit and miss LOL. When I go DCC I'll invest in a large(ish) stay alive :)
