Hi. I'd like to share one of my layouts. This is fully automated. Trains are fed into the layout to the up and down lines from a rear fiddle yard. About the fifth train in each direction will stop in the station. Meanwhile at the back of the station there is a fully automated shunting operation continuously running. I set the shunting at a slow speed to look realistic. If you watch the whole sequence from delivery of wagons to their being ready for collection - this takes patience - it takes a while Laughing

Anyway, it is quite watchable. It can be downloaded from here

Regards to all.

Hi Pete,
Have given your track plan a good run.
First impressions was good.
Second impression, very good.
If you add to it let me know.
I don’t think it can get better than what it is.
Well done.
Reg.
5 stars…

Hi Pete,

Thanks for sharing your latest layout with us. A nice one. It reminds me to what I still have to do: track covers for crossings and double crossings (the covers for the turnouts will come with the next extension pack.

And many thanks for including a picture for Layout Viewer. Now a short description, like you have given here, for Layout viewer would be great. Wink

Kind regards,

Willi

Hi Pete

Thats a great track. I had to see what you were hiding in the big mountain.

I think it should be called control mountain great stuff.

Thanks Dave

Thanks everyone for your kind comments - they give encouragement Very Happy
I do like to hide my fiddle yards. In model railways they are usually hidden behind the scenery back board, I think.

In my next layout (the one I lost and am at present rebuilding) about 80% of the layout is hidden from view. Now there's something to think about Wink
