Looks fantastic! Are you based in the Trent Valley?

 

No but over many years have acquired the rolling stock for the WCML so thought using the Trent Valley region gives a wide variety from Stafford to Rugby.

I will get back to my own layout over the summer now, but the last exhibition event before Autumn that i had planned to attend was the Great Central Railway Model Event 2019. An event on such a large scale that could easily challenge Warley for the biggest and best model event of the year.

 

Will definitely be returning next year hoping for much better weather! For those unable to attend or didn't get a chance to look round everything, highlights of the layouts in part 1, part 2 and part 3 are below. Enjoy.

For a long time I’ve been wondering how to stop the dust/debris from the garage floor and finally come across the solution to install mats on the floor, progress made today shown below
