Absolutely superb. Look forward to seeing the video!

Hopefully your models are demonstrating that T is a credible scale to be taken seriously!

thanks for the video Doug - very enjoyable.

Don't envy the track cleaning though... :)

Great to see it in action! Your points appear to perform pretty well! Do you have much bother with them at all?

Interesting to note that TGauge.com have made available track packs based on track plans originally created and published by David K Smith on his website before he closed it down....and that one of the track layouts called Station Inn was the layout that I based Robins Run on. The layout at the time was named Switcheroo by David.

My mods to the layout were to extend the track runs for the two loops by creating multiple loops and to shorten the length of the layout by curling the left hand side of the station complex trackwork round a 90 degree curve.

Interesting to note that TGauge.com made a bridge in etching that you've been working on in 3D-Printing...
And the "Great Escape" is originally a "Spaghetti Bowl" by Eishindo or somegirl american.

Hi Doug
If you still have the foot bridge in stl format then i think that it may sell on your site under the station building section.

Brill layout ,i am still working out a few of my own layouts,but will take a few pointers from this layout.
