Thanks for the link to that Micro-Layout magazine. Carl Arendt was a great inspiration for me to to think small (is that a thing?) when I was getting into model rail so its great to see this new mag getting out there.

Ian now has a website for this magazine, where you can access back numbers:
https://micromodelrailwaydispatch.com/
You can get yourself put on his mailing list to be told when new issues are available.
To date, I'm the only person featuring a TT layout, but I'm sure he'd welcome more contributions!

Yes, I still have some of the HO stock from that first micro layout, though I sold the layout itself. I'm a fan of American HO and American TT equally but I haven't done much in either scale lately. Still, three shows for Naples Street coming up in the summer. Must get the layout dusted down and make sure everything is working!

First show of the year for Naples Street yesterday. It was organised by the German Railway Society (but here in the UK) and featured a TT room - no less than five TT scale layouts in the same room!

Ooh! There were lots of people taking pictures of our layouts but I don't have any myself. An oversight - don't know why I didn't think of it but there again I was operating on my own. Maybe some will appear on one of the Facebook groups. If I find any I'll post them.
