Just a suggestion for the tank unloading: such a place would have concrete also under the track. Nobody wants to let the spilled oil soak into the soil underneath and contaminate the ground water. I'll take a picture for inspiration during the weekend.

It looks great. Nice work!

Only the same thing like J P. You need a concrete basin around the unloading points. Maybe you can use "Feste Fahrbahn" from TT-filigran.

Great pictures, very useful. I'd done the mesh hose rests which have a drain underneath, I can easily change the track. The TT Filligran parts should do the trick nicely, and etched mesh should do the rest.

WOW Richard,

I just went through all 7 pages of your post. Can't believe I missed so much activity in 2 years. What really drew my interest is the catenary. I love electric locomotives. That over head wire is great looking. Nice work.

Hi Rich,

Looks like you stripped the layout back a bit (from what I remember it looked like at the UK TT event in early 2015), and then moved forward again. Agree with others, the electric pickup moving naturally under the catenary line looks great! Also, the thinness of the catenary line is really nice!
