That looks a fantastic layout, love the buildings. Did u scratch build them or built them from a kit. I've got some terraced houses from scalescenes but cant find any other buildings other than the plastic ones,which i'm not too keen on . Cheers Andy

If you ask nicely Rick from http://www.ngaugecardkits.co.uk/#/ he will do you t-gauge versions of his kits,he has stopped doing them off the shelf due to lack of support from the t-gauge community.

That is a real neat layout you have there! Seeing the paper buildings from various layouts have gotten me thinking about using it on my own stuff I designed. I also find myself just loving all the consists you have on and about there!

Littlefiddleton was scheduled to make a appearance at The Model Railway Group annual general meeting/show this year but due to circumstances beyond our control the show has been cancelled.There goes a chance to spread the word,Last year I demonstrated t-gauge with a bare board oval and HST set and it caused a bit of a stir,I was hoping to really get some real interest going this year.

Now that's a shame... :( :(

We need all the exposure we can get to increase interest in the gauge.

Don't despair.....you're bound to find somewhere to put your display on show.

I agree, we need more exposure.

The forum is getting little boring from little to no updates. This might be one of the most inactive forum I ever had been on.

It appears that we have on average about 15ish members that post regularly...and about 75 members that are registered.

I wish I could see what they're doing or what everyone's progress is going.

My SD70M is on hold since I'm getting parts in the mail and I wish I can come here and see other people's progress while I'm waiting...

I have not been posting regularly as Littlefiddleton is only one of 3 builds I have on the go at the moment and I find t-gauge very difficult to work on under lamp light,so there will be little to report until we get longer days with good natural light.

You're doing great! I mean I wished that we had more variety of people posting here.

Your layout is coming together nicely, what kind of printer did you use for the houses? Did you print them in photo-quality?

Printed them out using a Epson XP-305 all in one inkjet on plain light card at normal photo settings,some were printed on copier paper which is a bit light but works.

With Spring comes the better natural light so it is time to start work on Little Fiddleton again,so I have added more trees,hedges and some sheep.
