Thats brilliant Dave. The roof interior looks so realistic. Looking forward to the train announcement video - is that hooked up to the RR&Co timetable?

Thanks for the comments. As for the train announcements John, they are just the intercity Deltics at the moment. They will form the backbone of all scheduling on the layout.The announcements are part of the schedules for the trains as they approach Grantham station and I have timed the time taken to get from the storage yards to the station so I can work out their scheduled departure from storage. I thought I had better make some progress on running trains as my new Deltics will hopefully be at least in the UK and Eire shortly.

I have also had a couple of guys who live on one of the local urbanisations come up to see the layout so again running trains were needed. Sods law on that occasion, the announcements didn't work. I later found out that plugging a TV into the laptop at the last minute made the TV speaker the default which was of course set to off.

I have also plucked up the courage to fit a replacement laser head to the bigger of my lasers and tested it out. Luckily nothing blew up. This is what I cut.



Not the best picture unfortunately. It's made of 2mm MDF which is the thickness of my cork underlay so will be quite easy to fit around the engine shed. The inspection pit has now got steps at the ends and a concrete wrap on the top surface. The inner walls are laser engraved brickwork. A note for Petermac, if they may be of use to you pm me and I can drop one or more off in August.

That looks great Dave - and the ability to cut 2mm MDF will be a huge step forward. :thumbs

Regarding inspection pits - I do have a couple installed already - Peco ones I think so, whilst it's a very kind offer, not really necessary for me.

Looking forward to seeing your pit develop. :cheers

Just got back from our club meeting which normally takes place down on the coast (about 1hr+ from here). One of the guys asked if I would do him four inspection pits so I gave him the one in the photo and he can have the others next month. Another guy is also into lorries and buses as well. So he said a shorter one would make a great service pit for one of his bus garages - I hadn't thought of that - I guess there might have to be one in the bus garage I have planned.
