Here is an update - the cycle park is now finished, the backscene is 99% finished but needs some work as it sags a bit on the r/h end where it joins the next board - notice the pencil lines to show how we will improve it.

One criticism/comment that I have received (and I acknowledge) is that originally the front of the layout is 'dead' - all the detail is at the back.

One viewer said that I needed a Faller roadway at the front to add interest - I replied that we had had a Faller roadway in place since day , but that we had never had time to develop it. The issue is that it needs to be 100% reliable - 99% is not good enough! We don't have a spare operator to monitor it and so we need to start it off when the show open and except for re-charging batteries we need to forget about it.

With so much time on my hands the Faller system has been a priority now. We're getting there, here is a video and look for the truck doing a little wiggle around the parked estate car …
