Looking at your pictures Steve came across the shot of the signal box. you have made wonderful job of the point control rods leading from the signal box. I have never ever thought of doing anything like that. It is stuff like that which brings it all to life.

Thanks John, I think rodding on an OO layout is a must have and it's not that difficult but the kits can be a bit expensive. I'd love to have it on my N layout as well but that really will be a step too far.
But........I am simplifying my points over the winter so I may be able to consider it if I could work out a way of actually constructing it.
I may need a straight jacket after that though.

Angry On the workbench

I've only got 8 feet by 18 inches to play with so I'm definitely feeling inadequate!:mad

Was that the SW Trains? If so, then it is running but it can't see in the dark if you know what I mean. It's the Western that is a lost cause.
