Hi Juup,

The buildings are all removable, so they're safely out of the way while I'm doing other work. I'm hoping to get a signal box and the new Auhagen factory when I visit Germany in three weeks' time.

Hi Rich,

Germany trip ... I'm envious.

What is this new Auhagen factory? I've been exploring buildings quite a bit lately, and this took me away from Auhagen stuff. Over the past year I have bought the following kits:

Trafo building:

(not assembled yet)

A loco shed:

(85% assembled :)

Signalbox - model number 202:

(not assembled yet)

A station building:

(not assembled yet)

Another company that does TT, but didn't buy anything from them yet, is:

So, quite a few TT buildings available from others ... all seem to be laser cut carton, but very good quality from the looks of things so far :)

I've been making a lot of progress, though not taking pictures, as I have a show coming up that's quite large. Trainwest in Cosham, Wiltshire on 9/10 April. So what's been happening? There's now a LOT of concrete in around the paper mill, made from foam board following Emmanuel Nouaillier's techniques. The spill capture is in place by the tank unloading point. Greenery is rapidly expanding, a base of foam flock topped with static grass. Backscene is going in, though only where the layout isn't backed by large buildings. I've taken the excuse to buy some more stock, having a short double deck rake and a bargain (€70) Ludmilla- these are on offer in lots of shops, so grab yourselves a cheap loco.

A grabbed phone camera image showing the partial backscene at the Meissen end of the layout...

Where the switch mech goes under the building - any plans on hiding that somehow?

Parking wagons in front of it ;)

For now I'll see if anyone notices it during exhibitions, for now I'm working with broad brush strokes to be generally presentable. There's a lot of fine detail which will be added over time, pipes, signs, industrial equipment etc.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for the exhibition of your layout, that all works properly. It looks very good.

By and large the layout worked well, excepting when the power lead was pulled out of the tablet being used for point control. Two droppers had come away in transit, so I repaired those. My operators seemed to enjoy themselves, and the layout went down well with viewers. I've had a tentative invite to Manchester exhibition, which is pretty prestigious!

Monsier Laurent has it explained that German trains run on the right.

John tried to understand how to use an Intellibox.

I converted a friend to TT recently! His Traxx DE takes wagons up the branch.

That damn train is still on the left hand track...
